A Paper Ball Ornament from How About Orange

Here is a super-cute ornament from How About Orange. When I saw them I had to make them!

Cute huh? Jessica not only gives you instructions but she actually gives you PDFs with the shapes already set up, so you all you have to do is print them out on pretty paper, cut them out and put them together! She even has three different sizes including one as large as a basketball. I may need to make a basketball-sized one as a permanent decoration. My mum made the basketball one!

Here is one of ours. We made six for the tree!

We used card stock in three colors. They are a little fiddly to put together, make sure you cut the slits at least halfway. Jessica suggests putting the string in first if you're going to make them as ornaments, which is exactly what we did, and it worked very well! Just print, cut and start slotting them together until there are no slots left!

Jessica also has a bunch of other ornaments to make. 

If you want to make your own, head over to How About Orange and start! I love them! The rest of the tuts are on the left side. I may have to try the Spiky Modern Ball too.

Until tomorrow,


  1. I made some small ones to put on our tree. I too made a huge one and hung it in a kitchen window. Where is the Spiky Modern Ball?
