If you have a few sheets of thick colored paper, or magazine covers, we suggest building such bright Christmas tree balls:

Choose one of the stencils and print on colored paper, cut the embossed strips:

Arrange the cut strips, creating two colored overlaid one on top of another "sun". Using cut out circles and glue, fasten each layer first, then glue the bottom and top parts together in the center. Please note that the tips of the multicolored "rays" of the lower layer twist clockwise, and the "rays" of the upper layer counterclockwise.

The next stage is the interlacing of the bands in a circle. Use clothespins for fixing "rays" during weaving

It now remains only to secure the ends of the strips with glue and hide under the cut circle. Now you can pierce 2 holes with a needle, through which you pass a thread for suspension. Christmas tree toy is ready!

The following is a more simplified version.

These Christmas "balls" are easy to glue together from old Christmas cards, you need to cut the same size circles and glue them together. Add a ribbon suspension.
