Architectural Molding Inspired Paper Ornaments

I love molding and am usually trying to come up with different ways to use it. I recently thought the profile would be a cool shape for a paper ornament.

How to make paper ornaments from wood molding

I made three different ornaments from the profiles of some molding that I had in my basement. Here is an example of how I made one of these ornaments.

The image below is the profile of a piece of molding. This shape is the short ornament you see in the finished product photos.

I used my graphic software and copied this image three times, flipping and mirroring the image to create the image below.

Then I added this image to silhouette and duplicated the image to fit 6 copies on one page.

Step One: Print your images out. You need to use 12 pieces per ornament.

Step Two: Fold each piece in half lengthwise.

Step three: Glue your pieces together as shown below. Glue right next to the right side. Glue two sets of 6 pieces each.


Step four: At this point you will have two sets of 6 pieces each like this.


Step five: Use a piece of ribbon, string, threat, twine etc in the middle of these two sections make sure to loop and tie it off so you can hang the string before you glue the two paper sides together.


You are done!!
