What you’ll need:

Rough & Ready Shrinky Dinks Shrinkable Plastic
embroidery floss
kraft paper or parchment paper
cookie sheet or baking pan
markers and/or paint pens
colored pencils
hole punch
copy paper, optional
scissors

Instructions:

Begin by drawing out the Christmas tree shapes onto a plain sheet of copy paper until you get a design you like. Alternately you can search for Christmas tree clip art online. I drew all of my Christmas tree shapes free hand.

You’ll want your trees to take up anywhere from half to three-quarters of the page.

Now place one sheet of Shrinky Dink plastic on top of your design with the rough side up. Trace the outline of the tree with a marker.

Now use markers or colored pencils to color in the trees. I used Prismacolor Colored Pencils for their bold pigments and ability to blend easily. If you like you can use gold and silver paint pens to add accents to your trees once they are colored.

How to Make Easy DIY Christmas Ornaments

Now use a pair of scissors to cut out the Christmas tree shapes. Punch holes in the top of each tree using a hole punch, then place the shapes rough/colored side up on a baking or cookie sheet on top of either Kraft paper or parchment paper. Place in a preheated 350°F oven for approximately 3-3 1/2 minutes or until the trees have completely shrunk.

If your trees start to curl while in the oven, use a spatula to flatten them back out as they shrink.

Now remove your Christmas tree ornaments from the oven and allow to cool. Remove them from the baking sheet then thread embroidery floss through the holes at the top. Use shorter pieces of floss for ornaments or longer pieces of embroidery floss for Christmas necklaces. Alternately you could also use these as gift tags for your homemade Christmas gifts.
