A paper Christmas ball is a simple and beautiful Christmas decoration that can be made with your child. Despite the ease of manufacture, paper balls look very elegant and stylish, organically fitting into the festive interior of the apartment.
In order to make paper balls, first of all, you need to stock up on a set of materials and tools necessary for work: scissors, thin wire, beautiful ribbons and colored paper.
If you need to get a voluminous and lush paper ball, then you need to take several sheets of colored paper at the same time. One sheet is enough to make small balls.
The paper is folded in a neat accordion, gradually increasing the width of each next fold by a few millimeters.
But if you wish, folds can be made even - such a paper ball will also look very beautiful.
With a thin wire, the resulting accordion is pulled together in the center, the ends of the wire are fixed with a knot. A decorative tape is passed through the loop.
Both ends of the accordion are smoothly rounded off with scissors or cut at an acute angle to form an arrowhead.
After that, all layers of paper are gently straightened and the entire craft is gently shaken, giving it the appearance of a volumetric ball.
The same balls can be made from bright large napkins. To make the jewelry splendid, it is recommended to use at least 8-10 napkins at the same time.
Paper balls can decorate not only a Christmas tree, but also give a festive atmosphere to the whole house.
Paper pom-poms connected into a garland serve as a decorative decoration for window and door openings, can act as beautiful vertical pendants to the ceiling and lighting fixtures.
