Here's what I made and how I made them, inspired by an idea in Ideal Home. They are easy (and cheap) to make and look sweet hanging up.
Step 1: Choose a variety of coordinating decorative papers and cut them into 8cm x 4cm strips (you will need six pieces for each decoration)
Step 2: Fold each piece in half lengthways, and then fold the corners inwards (with the folded edge along the bottom)
Step 3: Fold each piece in half so the folded corners are together
Step 4: Insert the points of one piece into the 'pockets' of another (you should have a double-sided pocket next to the folded corners)
Step 5: Continue doing this to build up a circle
Step 6: Tie several finished circles together with twine or ribbon, fix with a brad and hang on your tree...
What are you hanging on your tree this year?
