Inkling: corrugated paper ornaments

Have you seen the cute corrugated ornaments at West Elm? Here’s a picture…I love the owl.


The store is filled with great d├ęcor and they have a terrific holiday section. But the corrugated ornaments caught my eye. Definitely something I could try to make.


I made a snowman and a heart. I used corrugated paper that I had on hand. My paper was thinner than the kraft box type corrugated paper used in the West Elm ornaments but it worked fine.

To make these, you simply cut strips of paper and roll them using glue every now and then to hold the roll together. To make a shape other than a circle, start rolling and shape as you roll.

The heart and snowman were fairly easy to make - so next up, I’m going to try to make the owl.
