This is very unique and very easy to make. It's also very inexpensive. So what more could you want in a DIY project.? Easy, inexpensive, and cute. You could customize this by using different color paper. Dipping the ends in glue and glitter will add just the right amount of bling.

That is cool! Who would have thought something so pretty could be made so simply? I haven't tried it yet, but I am going to. I might try it with thread instead of glue, but since she had trouble with it, I probably will, too, so I had better get some tacky glue.

For some reason, I thought these ornaments were stuck together in a completely different way, but I am thoroughly pleased to see the way they are really made. Did you have any issues with the paper rolling up in various sizes or trying to curl differently than the rest of the rolls?
