To Make Christmas Decorations With Paper You Will Need:

- Polystyrene ball
- Glue gun
- Metal hanger

DIY Paper Christmas Decorations Instructions:
Punch out approx. 80 circles with a paper punch. For this bauble we have used a 25 mm paper punch. Glue the first faux leather paper circle onto the top of the bauble using a glue gun.
Now glue four circles in a staggered fashion onto the polystyrene ball.
Glue the circles all the way around the bauble in a staggered fashion.
Push a hole in one of the faux leather paper circles for the metal hanger.
Make a hole in the bauble for the metal hanger.
Push the metal hanger into the bauble and glue in place.
