Here’s how to make cute and easy 3D DIY Christmas Card Ornaments for your tree.
Hi, friends. It’s the time of year when I share a new Handmade Christmas Ornament craft with you guys. These 3D DIY Christmas Card Ornaments look cute and complicated, but they’re so, so easy. In fact, I made a quick video to show you just how easy these are.
Christmas Bonus, I’m sharing this DIY ornament as part of Christmas Ornament challenge with a big group of my talented blogger friends. You can find a link to all of their crafty and clever ideas at the end of this tutorial. I hope you’ll check them out. 🙂

Here’s What You’ll Need
- Mini Christmas Cards (I used these)
- Hot Glue Gun (low temp for kids) & Scissors
- Christmas Twine
- Optional Wooden Stars
Mini Christmas Card Ornaments Steps
Start by making a mini Christmas Twine tassel on a 10″ long string. You can see how I make a tassel in the video. Or, see a close up tassel making video here. 🙂
Pick 12 Mini Cards that look nice together (similar colors). Then hot glue them closed.
Run a line of hot glue along the closed edge of the card and quickly stick the closed edge of another card onto that line. You want them to form an open triangle or pie shape. See the video, if that’s confusing. Keep doing this along the same line, with the rest of the cards
BEFORE GLUING the last card, glue the tassel in place. You want the tassel to hang just below the bottom of the card. Make a hoop on the top end of the card about 3″ long to hang the ornament on the tree. Then, glue the last card in place over that tassel.
This is optional, but I added wooden stars for a little extra touch. These are super simple DIY Christmas Card Ornaments that look so cute on the tree. I love this 3D Paper Craft technique. I used it to make 3D Christmas Tree Ornaments, last year. And, Hot Air Balloons for my Boys’ Bedroom Makeover.
Adjust spacing, as needed. You can make any minor adjustments to the spacing by pulling or pinching the cards where needed. Yep, that’s in the video too. 🙂 ALSO, you can make these with a flat back, if you prefer that look.
AND, I went ahead and made one of these with the little envelopes too. It’s just as cute, but would be even better with Christmas Stickers, Stamp, or cut outs from old cards added to each card. My kids will love customizing the envelope ornament.
