Advent Calendar Day 7 - Easy 3D Christmas Decoration Tutorial with Free Template

We’re 7 days into our Christmas Advent already! Today, we’ve got these super easy 3D decorations for you to make and we’ve also included a free template to make creating them even easier!


Simple to make yet super effective, these 3D Christmas Decorations will look super pretty hanging in your Christmas tree.

What’s great about these decorations is that you can pick and choose which paper or card you use to suit your décor - we opted for the First Edition Merry Little Christmas paper and Dovecraft Glitter Card. These Christmas Decorations can either be left as they are, or you can take them one step further and decorate them with embellishments. This is also a fun Christmas craft for kids to do as the decorations don’t require lots of assembling.

Follow our step-by-step for these wonderful decorations below. Happy crafting!

1.Cut out the shapes from your free template and draw around these onto the paper or card of your choice. Cut out your design and ensure that you’ve made a hole in the top of the decoration in order to hang it from tree when finished.


2. Decorate your design with Dovecraft Glitter Glue. We chose to place glitter around the edges of our star design for a touch of sparkle.


3. Slot the two shapes of your design together to make your 3D decoration!


3.Repeat with a variety of complementing papers. Thread the twine or ribbon through the hole in the top of the decoration – we used the Simply Creative Christmas Twine.
