Geometric Icicle DIY Ornaments

Today I’m excited to share one of the crafts from my new ebook, Christmas Paper Crafts, with Easy Peasy and Fun readers.

This book is a collection of 12 fun and easy paper craft ideas that are designed to be printed on regular colored construction paper (saves ink!).

DIY Geometric Icicles Paper Ornament

Does it snow where you are on Christmas? Where we live is midsummer on Christmas Day.

The cicadas are singing, the sun is beating down and people are wearing shorts and T-shirts or sleeveless summer dresses. We have no hope of ever seeing a true white and frosty Christmas unless we make it ourselves! When I was a kid, I used to decorate our tree with cotton balls to try and make it look snowy (it wasn’t), but now I have a better idea.

This year we decided to add a touch of winter frost to our tree using some geometric icicles. Create them in shades of blue for an icy look, brrrr! The model comes in two different sizes to give the ice cubes some variation.
