Christmas DIY: Folded Paper Ornaments

ornaments-titleUnique centre pieces can be difficult to find in stores. Candles surrounded by arrangements of pine and holly can look dated and are often over priced. These folded paper ornaments made from old paperback books will have your guests asking how you made them. Pair with votives in mismatched holders and a vintage table runner for a cosy and creative centre piece for your christmas feast. The only cost is the price of the book, under £1 from a charity shop or you could even use one you already own, just make sure it’s not a family heirloom!

If you are having problems with the front and back pages you can use a small amount of UHU glue to adhere them together. 150 pages in the minimum I would recommend using. For a denser and more stable object, increase the amount of pages to around 250/300 pages.
