Christmas Origami & Paper Crafts

Posted on


It’s only 3 weeks until Christmas and if you think you don’t have the time or supplies for handmade gifts and decorations, there’s always origami! All you need is some paper and you can fold up something festive that can be stuck on a card, used as gift wrapping or turned into decorations. Here’s some of the cutest Christmas origami and paper craft projects on Youtube.

This Christmas cake gift box by KOKKO Garden might look intimidating but it’s broken up into a series of videos so you can make a little bit at a time. Some of the individual pieces, like the Santa and holly bells, would be really cute on a card too.

For smaller gifts, Kamikey has these adorable polar bears that have a little pocket for a treat or note. You could make these with wrapping paper to get some nice holiday patterns.

These gift envelopes by NiceNo1 look really impressive but only use one sheet of origami paper. You can pop a little gift inside but they’d also be really cute glued on a card or used as a gift tag.

There’s loads of different Christmas tree origami designs but this one by Dahchan really stands out with a unique shape. These would be really fun to decorate with stickers, and could be used for cards, garlands and tags.

Dahchan has a whole playlist of origami wreaths that you can mix and match with their other creations. This one adds a cute reindeer and I love the idea of using stickers for the eyes and red nose.

This papercraft Christmas wreath by Happy Drawings looks very simple and effective. The video shows a small size that would make cute tree ornaments or gift tags but you could also scale it up for a wall decoration.

And who can resist these jumping reindeer and snowman by Hello Origami that pop up when you press them? These would be fun as table decorations or place cards to keep everyone occupied while they wait for dinner.
