An easy, four-step Snowflake Christmas Ornament

Gather your paper, punch, pin, repeat. In a nutshell, that’s all you need to DIY a Paper Punch Snowflake Ornament. Making these Snowflake Ornaments isn’t hard, but it’s what I like to call a “TV craft.” Download a few Christmas carols, cozy up to a cup of cocoa, and punch and pin and you’ll have your Snowflake Ornament done in no time.

Pretty! DIY ornament with paper punches and a ball of Styrofoam brand foam.

Paper Punch Snowflake Ornament by Patty Schaffer.

To make a Paper Punch Snowflake Ornament, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 3” ball
  • Scrapbook paper, 12” x 12”, two sheets of white (Patty used a paper with an embossed texture)
  • Pearl head pins in white, about 75
  • White ribbon, 5/16” x 10” (for hanging)
  • Tools needed: Scissors; 1” snowflake punch

Wouldn’t these snowflakes be pretty punched from a glitter paper?

To make a Paper Punch Snowflake Ornament:

  1. Punch out about 75 snowflakes from your white scrapbook paper.
  2. Push a pearl head pin through the center of a snowflake and pin the snowflake to the ball.
  3. Continue pinning snowflakes to the ball until it’s covered.
  4. Knot together the ends of the ribbon, leaving 1” tails. Pin and glue the knot to the ornament.

The all-white snowflakes are simply elegant.

For a little pop of color, try changing out the white, pearl head pins for something more colorful, like Patty did when she made her Paper Punch Flower Ornament.

A pretty, and easy, Ornament to DIY with paper punches, head pins, and a ball of Styrofoam brand foam.

Patty Schaffer used a flower paper punch and red, pearl head pins for this ornament.

Don’t put your paper punches away yet – I’ll have another pretty, paper punch craft for you later this week to kick off the annual Festival of Trees. I’m planning a giveaway, too . . .

      Hi Halley — I just left a note on Facebook about the punch. Patty used a Paper Studio punch, and you can find them on e-bay. You’ll find other choices at Create for Less, too. Lots of pretty punches out there! Thanks! Sharon

      Absolutely for the New Year, too! I think you could display a bowl of these little pretties all winter long, don’t you? So glad you stopped in today — thank you! Sharon

    I love this snowflake ornament. Nice holiday sparkle!!

    • Sharon says:

      You could add more sparkle, too, if you used a glitter paper, or brushed a little glue on the snowflakes and sprinkled on glitter. Or, spritz the ornament with a glitter spray. A little glitter is always good! Thanks for stopping in. Sharon
