Make Christmas Paper Houses and Ornaments

Grab some craft paper and make Christmas paper houses and ornaments. These look beautiful on a table or mantle with little battery-operated tea lights under them! You can make a whole village of paper houses! Or make a little hole and use embroidery ribbon to hang them on the Christmas tree.

Make Christmas Paper Houses and Ornaments

There are two sizes in the PDF download. You could make small and larger houses with several different types of craft paper. We do recommend regular scrapbooking paper, in an 8.5″ x 11″ size.

This is an older-kid-friendly craft. Make sure the hot glue gun and paper-knife are not in a younger child’s reach. You’ll need to do the cutting of the windows and gluing for your younger children. OR do the cutting and use double-sided tape or glue tabs so they can help seal them together.

Watch how to put this template together!
