How to make Christmas Ornaments from plastic sheets:

Step 1:

Start with a small sheet of plastic. These come with a thin sheet of paper to prevent scratches.

Fully colored… Allow the paint to dry for some time. 20 to 30 minutes should be sufficient for the paint to dry well. If you’re not happy with how you painted, remove it using nail polish remover and re-paint.

With glitter glue, designs are drawn on the base.

  1. Hi Ramya. Think you have a lovely and user-friendly website. Thanks for the clear tutorials as well. Never thought I’d tackle 3D origami or some of these projects but you make it look so easy.
    Keep it up!
    Much appreciated
