Looking for a fast or simple Christmas project? Consider paper crafts! You can make just about anything you need with some paper and a few basic craft supplies, making it a great choice for crafting in a pinch for the holidays.
For a last minute décor idea, SimplePaperMade has a really cute paper Christmas tree tutorial that is a more intricate and challenging option.
Speaking of SimplePaperMade, they also have a how-to video for a detailed origami wreath.
If that wreath is a little too advanced for you, you can also try out niceno-1’s origami poinsettia wreath. It’ll be easier on beginners and looks just as good!
Sweet Paper’s channel has an easy origami bauble ornament tutorial that offers Japanese and English subtitles. Make several and hang in front of a window for a cute display!
Kamikey Origami has lots of fun Christmas projects, but have you seen their newer origami reindeer video? And if you love the wreath it’s featured on, check out the video description for all the tutorial links to make the other parts.
I also love Kamikey’s origami gingerbread man project and think it would be cute glued on the front of a handmade holiday card.
For more handmade card ideas, Craftilicious has an adorable pop-up Santa Claus card tutorial that doesn’t require a lot of supplies or time to make!
And if you’re still looking for some cute decorations to add to your tree or mantel, check out the Fun channel’s origami Santa Claus garland that is another good choice for beginners to origami.
