I had fun making these. I used cut strips of scrapbooking paper to make them.











Thanks for looking.

Very pretty!!!

I saw something similar in the Better Homes & Gardens Christmas crafting magazine that was out earlier - I think I quite like your version better!

These were from a Martha Stewart holiday book. It's actually made of eight strips of paper.  You fold the strips in half and then using a toothpick--tightly roll each side of the strip to the center. It should look like a rolled heart when you're done rolling.

You then unfurl the rolled paper a bit to make the curled shapes. You can play with the shapes and sizes of the curly cues.
 I then make the ornament in halves. I glue four together and then combine the two halves.

I think they're kind of fun and more interesting than tinsel.

Oh my gosh, these are great! When you say you play with the size of the curls, how do you do that? Do you physically open it up more, or do you use larger "sticks"? I'm imagining a small wooden dowel or something. I think I might have to try a few of these to hang in our windows. Thanks for posting!

I love these, thanks for posting them.  I have thinking I want to make all of my decorations for my tree this year, or atleast most of them, depending on how many I can get done by Christmas.  I have been haveing a hard time finding something I can make out of what I already have.  These look easy enough, I am wondering if construction craft paper will work, or pages out of old novels or something, I am going to try.  Thanks again.

Luv your quilled ornaments! I wanted to do some Christmas, snowflake & white pointsetta ornaments using quilling, but use paper that has a gold leaf edge. Not sure how to go about getting that paper, but I'm up for trying anything (except for cutting 1/8" off my bible pages)    -kidding!  Thanks for sharing
