DIY Book Page Christmas Ornaments

Two Christmas ago, I decided to try out a tutorial that I had fallen in love with on Pinterest. I have always been somewhat of a crafty gal, so I figured why not? I made these paper book ornaments and they turned out AMAZING! This will be the third Christmas that they will be hanging on our tree-I still cannot believe they lasted so long! Here is how to make them! blogger-image-22055700 All you need:
  • 1 old paperback book or newspaper (that you do not mind hacking up)
  • Elmer's glue
  • A pair of scissors,
  • Plain ordinary Christmas ornament balls of any color (I bought a box of 12 from the Dollar Store!)
To make the ornaments:
  1. I look through the book and found some words, phrases, and sentences that I liked.
  2. I then cut them out into little strips and set the strips aside.
  3. To make my binder, I poured the 1/2 cup of Elmer's glue into a small bowl of 1/2 warm water. Then I dipped each strip of paper into the water/glue mix and molded them onto the ball, kinda like paper mache.
  4. Then you hang to dry overnight.
  5. That's all!
