West Elm Coiled Paper Ornament Knock Off


Coiled magazine page project return!  These little things are so easy to make, and basically free.  I have shown you the larger cross wall art, and a small cross ornament.  A sweet friend who knows how into rolling paper I can be, pointed out these West Elm ornaments

WestElmOrnamentsI had just enough strips of folded magazine pages to make the tree and the star.  All I did was look at the example ornaments and place my round coils where they did.  For instructions on making strips and rolling coils, see this post.  I glued the round pieces together, then outlined them with strips, folding them to create the desired shapes, gluing them to the coils at the contact points.
