For this you’ll need a printer, scissors, a chickadee tree topper template and ornament template, some printable paper, tape, string and any additional fun art supplies such as markers or paints. First print out the pdfs. It’s better to use heavyweight paper or cardstock because regular paper tends to lose its shape and consistency. Then cut the shapes out and flip them over. Cut a piece of string about 6 inches long, loop and knot it then tape it onto the paper.

After that begin folding the paper into a three-dimensional shape. Use tape to assemble it. At the end just put a roll of double-stick tape inside the tip and pinch. And this way it will stay closed at the bottom. Now you can either hang the ornament into the tree or use the opening at the bottom to slip it over the top of the tree. You can also add some color and come up with fun prints. And this is how you get a personalized decoration for your Christmas tree.{found on designsponge}
