Easy Christmas Crafts: Pyramid Box Ornament


The pyramid box ornament made of paper, ribbon and beads becomes an interesting decoration, or it could even hold and hide a small gift.

Let's take a look at a couple of examples.

This one in pink with pink net ribbon used the smallest pattern.

Here's a blue one based on the largest pattern that used loops of yarn instead of ribbon.

And, this is the one we are making - green with green ribbon and beads.

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Pyramid Box Ornament:

Print the Pyramid Box Ornament pattern.

Select the size and cut out the pattern.

Position the pattern on the card stock and cut around the shape.

Pyramid Box Ornament step 1 cut out shape

Punch two holes in the base of the pyramid.  

Pyramid Box Ornament step 2 punch holes in base

Using the ruler as a straight edge, begin folding up the sides of the pyramid. 

Pyramid Box Ornament step 3 fold up sides

Punch holes in each of the pyramid's points. 

Pyramid Box Ornament step 4 punch holes in points

Cut three different lengths of ribbon, one each of 9 inches, 11 inches and 13 inches. 

Pyramid Box Ornament step 5 cut three ribbons

Thread one ribbon end through one bead.

Tie a knot in the end of the ribbon.

If the bead could easily slip over the knot, a drop of glue can be added to hold the bead above the knot. 

Trim the ribbon end at an angle.

Pyramid Box Ornament step 6 add bead to one end

Thread the ribbon through the base of the pyramid. 

Pyramid Box Ornament step 7 thread ribbon through base

Add a bead to the other end of the ribbon, tie a knot (glue, if necessary) and trim the ribbon end.

Pyramid Box Ornament step 8 add second bead

Add the other two ribbons and remaining beads in the same way. 

Pyramid Box Ornament step 9 add other ribbons and beads

Pull the ribbons together and tie a knot at the base of the pyramid. 

Pyramid Box Ornament step 10 tie ribbons together

Cut two lengths of ribbon 12 inches long. 

Pyramid Box Ornament step 11 cut two ribbons

Pull two adjacent pyramid sides together. 

Push one of the ribbons through the two holes in the points.

Loosely tie the points together with a half knot. 

Pyramid Box Ornament step 12 tie two adjacent points together

With the second ribbon, tie the opposite two pyramid points together the same way. 

Pyramid Box Ornament step 13 tie opposite points together

Use a full knot to tie  one end of each ribbon together to close one of the remaining open sides of the pyramid.

Pyramid Box Ornament step 14 tie adjacent open sides together

Do the same for the remaining open side of the pyramid. 

Pyramid Box Ornament step 15 tie last two sides together

Collect the ribbon ends at the pyramid points and tie a knot to form the hanging loop.

Trim the ends of the ribbon at an angle. 

Pyramid Box Ornament step 16 tie ends into loop

The pyramid box ornament is ready to display. 

For some additional fun - add a small gift wrapped in pretty tissue paper before closing the pyramid's sides.

Or, the little pyramid could also hold fragrant potpouri in a room or a closet any time of the year.

Pyramid Box Ornament step 17 hang to display

Just paper, ribbon and beads become a simple and interesting decoration.

Have fun!

The Pyramid Box Ornament is a fun and easy project that allows you to make a few, several or many of the decorations quickly.
