DIY Honeycomb Paper Ornaments

This year my Christmas tree was looking BARE. This is my first holiday season in my new home and I wanted some fresh decorations. I decided to create these DIY Honeycomb Paper Ornaments for my tree that I’m obsessed with! After seeing versions of these ornaments at Target, West Elm, McGee & Co., as well as several other popular retailers, I knew I had to try to make some of my own at home with my Cricut machine.

It’s important to know that this project is way easier and faster if you have a Cricut cutting machine. It can also be done if you have a regular computer printer at home, but it does take a little bit more patience.


Step 1: Select and Download Your File

Choose and download the file of the ornament that you would like to make.

The links below will take you to my Etsy shop where you will be able to purchase and download the digital files at the very low price of $0.99. These files can be used over and over to make as many ornaments as you wish!

I also a bundle pack with also ornaments at a discounted price!

If you are using a Cricut, you will use the SVG file.

If you are using a printer, you will use the PDF file.

Step 2: Cut the Pieces

  1. Open Cricut Design Space
  2. Click New Project
