Easy Christmas Crafts: Eight Squares Wreath Ornament


The Eight Squares Wreath Ornament uses simple paper and yarn to become an interesting decoration using just scissors and glue. Of course, bling can be added for more fun!

Take a look at this solid color version with the addition of a bright and fun yellow bow.

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Eight Squares Wreath Ornament:

Print two copies of the first page of the Eight Squares Wreath Ornament pattern and one copy of the second page for the positioning template.

Cut out the eight rounded squares.

I find it helpful to punch hole in the middle of the shape and cut an "X" before cutting around the inner edge of the shape.

Eight Squares Wreath Ornament step 1 cut out shapes

Stack the square shapes with any printed edges down.

If you are doing two colors decide which will be the back and which will be the front colors.

In this case, red will be the back color and green the front.

Position the first shape on the template.

Eight Squares Wreath Ornament step 3 position first shape

Place dots of glue where the shapes will overlap.

Position the second shape over the first using the template.

Eight Squares Wreath Ornament step 4 position and glue second shape

Rotate the two glued shapes to the left such that the second shape is over the template where the first shape started.

Eight Squares Wreath Ornament step 5 rotate shape

Add dots of glue and position the third shape over the second using the template.

Eight Squares Wreath Ornament step 6 position and glue third shape

Continue rotating and gluing the shapes one over the other.

This shows the position for the last shape to be added.

All of the shapes have been added to the Eight Squares Wreath Ornament.

Eight Squares Wreath Ornament step 8 shapes glued together

Cut a piece of yarn 8 to 10 inches long.

Eight Squares Wreath Ornament step 9 cut yarn

Fold the yarn in half.

Place glue behind one of the corners of the top shape and press the cut ends of the yarn into the glue.

The Eight Squares Wreath Ornament is finished and ready to display.

Here's an example where the squares are straight edged without the middle being cut away.

This forms an interesting background for a decoration, in this case simple sequins in a tree shape.

This would also be a great way to display pictures.

Just paper, yarn, scissors and glue make a simple but fun and bright ornament.

Mix and match colors, or use more colors.

Add ribbons, sequins, beads or whatever bling you desire to make your own design.

The choices are many!

The Eight Squares Wreath Ornament is a fun project for the young and the young at heart and can be a fun family or group project.
