Ornament week continues on Crafts ‘n Coffee, and today we have a dozen different ornaments you can make with paper. Who doesn’t love paper? It’s inexpensive, easy to use, and sold everywhere; and did I mention the endless selection? From soft & sweet pastels to punchy polka dots, I hope you’ll find a Christmas ornament in today’s line up that you just have to make. Also, don’t forget to watch our video “5 Christmas Ornaments in 5 Minutes” for even more ideas.
Step-by-step instructions for each of these ornaments are available on StyrofoamCrafts.com. Just click on the photo and you’ll be whisked away to the tutorial.

You won’t miss the Polka Dot Punch Ornaments hanging on your tree. Or, pile a bunch in a glass bowl for a colorful display.
Christmas bells were never this pretty! Our Opulent Wedding Bells Ornaments would make a very special “first Christmas” gift for newlyweds.
O.K., this one isn’t exactly an ornament . . . but our beautiful Golden Ornament Card is definitely a keepsake. A half-ball of STYROFOAM Brand Foam is decorated to look like an ornament and makes the card a standout.
There’s more to come tomorrow – see you then!
Happy Christmas crafting!
