How to Make Paper Honeycomb Ball Ornament

Step 1:

Cut a 3″ diameter circle then fold it in half. Fold your cardstock in half, open it then fold the edges toward the center. On one folded edge, place the straight edge of the folded circle and trace the curve. Repeat all the way down and on the other side. Cut each piece. You need 10 pieces red and 10 pieces green for a total of 20.

Step 2:

Get one red circle, spread glue on one folded side, and then place a folded green circle on top. Repeat until you glue the 20 pieces together, alternating the colors. Wipe the excess glue on the straight edge.

Step 3:

Separate the flaps and wipe away any excess glue.

Step 4:

Add glue near the top and bottom, alternating for each flap. Make sure to keep the glue away from the edges. Once done, hold them together with a clothespin on both ends. Let it sit for a couple of minutes, to let it dry.

Step 5:

Glue the ends together. Use a small clothespin to keep it in place.

Step 6:

Insert the gold bead on the red ribbon. Hold the ends together, then use it to measure the ornament so you know how long you need. Cut the excess. Glue the ends together, then insert them in the middle of the paper ornament.  Glue the bead on the bottom, then tie the ends of the ribbon together.
