Paper Wheel Ornaments {No.10}

Paper Wheel Ornaments {No.10}


Paper Wheel Ornament
{Ornament Number Ten}Materials Needed:Cardstock or Scrapbooking Paper
Ribbon
Embellishments {glitter}


Lay your sheet of paper horizontal and lightly mark off 1 inch guidelines using a measuring tape; Cut into vertical strips. I used a total of 8 strips for the ornament above and made my cuts with a paper cutter. {these can also be hand cut} Once you have 8 strips cut them in half again.

The length of the strip will determine the diameter of your ornament. I used a standard sheet of Kraft paper, that when turned horizontal gave me 8 1/2 inch long strips. {4 1/4 inches long once they were cut in half}


Loop sixteen of the 4 1/4 inch strips and hot glue the ends together to hold in place.


Start assembling you wheel by hot gluing the loops together; A little dap of hot glue applied to the end as well as a dap in the center will doo. Lightly press together while working your way around to make a complete circle.


Before you glue the last loop into place, tuck in a piece of ribbon for your hanger. {The hot glue will hold it in place}


Embellish your ornament as you please. I brushed a little white glue on the outer edges using a paint brush and sprinkled with Silver PK Glitter Glitz.

All of the ornament tutorials featured are very basic and allow you to create them to your own personal taste and style ~ be creative and have fun! Enjoy!

  1. This made me think of another way to do them: Toilet paper / Paper Towel rolls! I think that the same look might be doable with the cardboard tubes… One more thing that can be re-purposed a million ways and this would be a beautiful option if it works… I’ll have to try it… I’m thinking maybe same thing but make give it a Poinsettia look in prep for Christmas? Hmm….

    Thank you for the wonderful tutorials!!!

  2. I LOVE all the crafts you make and show us how to make our own..Thank you soooo much for all your time..you are a real sweetheart to share with all of us :)

  3. I follow your blog using Google reader and unlike the other blogs – yours just shows the title for that blog and you as the author. Any chance you could change your settings – so I don’t have to click on the title and have a new window open to see that post?

    Thanks – Sherry C.

  4. Wouldn’t it be grand to make about 20 of each from your ornament tutorials? Then you’d have enough to give a box of various, handmade ornaments to your friend for Christmas. OK, I’ve just gotten myself excited! Lisa~

  5. those would be so easy for kids to make as well!

  6. I love handmade ornaments so much, thank you for sharing, this is beautiful.

  8. I am crazy about the way this one makes a little inner flower. Still slightly dizzy from all the ornaments, but loving it.

  9. Fun! I bet you could even make these out of toilet paper rolls!

  10. So simple, yet so beautiful. I’m going to be making up a bunch of these for the tree once I find my blasted hot glue gun.

  11. Great idea!

  12. a love the little hint of glitter at the edges. i’m thinking these could be made with ribbon too- wire-edged ribbon would allow you to pinch the tips to a point. oooooooo, & a button or little cabochon in the middle for a flower center :)
