Handcrafted for the Holidays: Scandinavian Paper Ornaments

Handcrafted for the Holidays

Scandinavian Paper Ornaments created by Signe from SigneRoo

You know what I love best about holiday traditions? It doesn’t matter how old you are, it’s always fun to roll up your sleeves and find yourself elbow deep in the holidays! Frosting cookies, decorating the tree, homemade fudge…you name it!

Even though I now reside in Texas, I like to try and keep the Northern traditions alive! Chad and I both have Norwegian heritage, and we wanted to keep that prevalent in our yearly customs.  Last year, my brother made a few Scandinavian paper ornaments for our first Christmas tree, and I knew then that they would make a perfect yearly tradition. Especially with kids!

The best part? They are really easy to make! You can add a little Scandinavian flare to your tree or you can even make a little bunting for the doorway like we did.  In Norway, they fill the little heart baskets with candies or gifts. I kept ours empty, because I know I’d sneak one every time I walked under that doorway!

The Holiday season is one of the most wonderful times of the year. It’s a nice excuse to slow down, sit down with those you love and share a cup of cocoa! {And maybe even get a little crafty, too!}  I hope you have a tradition that you are able to enjoy every year, as well.  Happy Holidays!
