If you are having trouble trying to make a 3D paper Christmas tree then you will not be alone in that regard. I’ve done a lot of work on this and there are lots of different tutorials that can be found all over the internet. But the truth is most of these 3D garland patterns that you can find online just aren’t that great. Sometimes they are pretty good, but other times they aren’t. This article is going to explain why you shouldn’t use the free Christmas tree decoration plans that you can find online as your Christmas tree decoration patterns.
A few years ago my husband was visiting from our home state and he absolutely adored the new house that we had built. As a result of this he wanted to show his wife how much we loved the home and how much we appreciated everything that we had done to decorate it. So one evening we went out to dinner and when we got home we decided to decorate the Christmas tree the old fashioned way. We knew that if we used the free printable Christmas tree decorations that were available online then we could do it easily. So needless to say we headed to the local super store and purchased a bunch of different garlands and we placed them on the branches of the tree. And sure enough after a while they started to fall off.
So my husband and I quickly took down the old ornaments and went home to find some more Christmas decoration ornaments to place on the tree. The funny thing was that none of them were actually for our tree. I tried using the tutorial that was provided to try using different colors but this seemed to cause the colors to blend together. So eventually I ended up going back to the tutorial and trying to use a few different colors that were offered. This time around the results were much better because I was able to use three ornaments at a time and it produced a much better look.
So what did we learn from the Christmas origami decorations that we created? Well, it seems that using three or four different colors gave the decorations a much more dimensional look. This went along way in having the entire home looking very realistic. Once we got over this however it was easy to decorate the home with real ornaments and it really added some extra color to the home.
So after we got over the paper Christmas tree ornaments issue I knew that it was time to move onto something else. I decided that we should start with the origami flowers that are available at most craft stores during the holiday season. These flowers are great if you have ever thought about making origami flowers but have never really gotten started. It is very easy to make these flowers and all you need is some glue, scissors, glue sticks, wire, a lot of rolled up paper and a lot of cold water. The best thing about these flowers is that they are very realistic looking and they will truly astound the person who views them.
After making the first one of these flowers I knew that there was no way that I would go through the process of making these decorations again. They just were not worth the effort. Therefore, I did not make any more paper Christmas tree ornaments during the year. That was a mistake because as the holidays approached my wife was extremely impressed with my craftsman skill and craftsmanship.
