Makeover your tree with festive homemade trimmings. To create this pretty ornament, all you need is six strips of paper and a scrap of ribbon. Punch a hole in each strip at each end, and fold the ends down. Then flatten strips again and stack together. Knot one end of ribbon and thread it through the bottom holes, then through the top. Knot the ribbon at the top, fan out the strips, and hang. It’s a perfect winter-afternoon activity — and the kids will love to help!
