Are you already looking forward to the winter holidays? Do you want to decorate the house with themed ornaments, colorful garlands and little lights that illuminate the room to create a truly festive atmosphere? Okay, if you are a person in love with the Christmas spirit, make yourself a cup of spice tea, grab the scissors and embark on our DIY project which will inspire you to make a Christmas decoration out of corrugated cardboard. This year, we are focusing on crafts from recycled materials for a greener and truly unique party! Come on, let's get started!
Corrugated cardboard Christmas decoration for an artistic and unique party
After showing you how to make a Christmas decoration with plastic cap, it's time to put the cardboard on a pedestal. We're going to use a corrugated cardboard that you can find in a lot of cardboard boxes, but it's also available in assorted colors at hobby stores. Other materials you need are:
- Glue that can be replaced by double-sided tape
- A black marker for small details
- Decorative ribbons
These are the basic materials for making some Christmas ornaments, but you can decorate them with whatever you have on hand. Use an old necklace left in the jewelry box or small nail beads. Everything is possible ! You just need to be creative and have some free time.
Christmas tree from corrugated cardboard
In addition to the materials mentioned above, you need to get a cardboard sheet and a paper cone. The latter is easy to make by folding a sheet of cardboard. So, it is not necessary to visit the store. Corrugated cardboard should be cut into strips with a size according to your preference. Our advice is to make them with a width of no more than 2 cm so that the tree can get an elegant and thin air. Once the cardboard is cut, apply glue all over the cone. Now, starting from the top, glue one end of the strip of red corrugated paper and start spiraling it down. Make sure it has adhered well. Continue until the cone is completely covered. Then cut a cardboard circle the same size as the base of the cone. Glue this circle to the bottom of the corrugated paper cone. Take a strip of brown corrugated paper and wrap it in a tight spiral. Push the center lightly to give it some height and glue it to the base of the cone. All you have to do is decorate your Christmas tree with pretty ornaments!
Gloves for the Christmas tree
This idea is super easy and is great even for kids. Draw and cut some corrugated cardboard gloves. Afterwards, let your children express themselves with various recycled materials. Here are some suggestions from us: buttons, stickers of their favorite animation and markers to add a little color. You can make these ornaments a little larger by tracing your little loulou's gloves. He can do it himself and we are sure he will have a good time during this activity.

This corrugated cardboard Christmas decoration is still a good idea for the little ones. You can make it out of natural corrugated paper and color it using acrylic paints. For small details like eyes and smile, use a marker. Create several decorations of this type, also add the gloves and make a pretty garland for Christmas.
Rolled up cardboard snowman
Here is a second option to create a snowman, but this time in a 3D version. For these ornaments you just need to roll up two corrugated cardboard strips and glue them together. Afterwards, give free rein to your imagination. Use whatever you have at home to decorate them.
Christmas card with corrugated cardboard decorations
Take a white cardboard, fold it in half and voila! You already have the basis for your DIY Christmas card. If you are away from your family, add a personalized touch to your holiday gift and make this card easy. Instead of those corrugated cardboard triangles, you can glue the ornaments that you were shown above.
Pine cones from corrugated cardboard
They are pretty, aren't they? Simple and elegant, this corrugated cardboard Christmas decoration will take 5 minutes of your free time. You can do them even during your rest, if you are in "home office". Take a Styrofoam egg and a few dozen corrugated cardboard circles. Take the glue and shape these pretty balls. At the top, glue a large colored bow that matches the decoration of your home. Use them for other pine cone crafts or decorate them additionally as shown in the photo gallery below.
