I recently put up a post about paper crafts that adults can make, and I was SO inspired by the beautiful things that we can make just from paper!
I saw so many paper Christmas decorations when I was looking at the other ones, so I decided to give a list of 30 of my favorite Paper Christmas Decorations. I can’t wait to make these!
PAPER CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS
From garlands, to envelopes and gift card holders, wreaths, Christmas villages….there are so many inspiring paper Christmas crafts in this post that will have you running to grab some paper and start crafting! 💃✂️
