minimalism

and

sustainability?

spend

huge sums of money on

expensive Christmas decorations

.

Especially since it is often

cheesy

and

impersonal

.

In addition, the Christmas decorations from the department store are no longer anything special if everyone has the same hanging at home.

Making Christmas decorations yourself is trendy

That is why some of them are already

relying

on

DIY projects

* (DIY = Do it yourself, in German: do it yourself) when it comes to

Christmas decorations

.

A nice and easy to implement idea to immerse your own four walls in a Christmassy atmosphere is

to make

poinsettias out of paper

yourself.

You don't need a lot for the paper stars and it is also very easy to recreate them.

Make paper stars for Christmas yourself - this is how it works

  • Take your brown and / or white

    paper bags

    and

    fold

    them once in the middle

    lengthwise

    .

  • Cut off

    the

    top

    right

    corner

    .

    The opening should also be on the right-hand side so that a

    house

    with a pointed roof emerges

    when it is unfolded

    .

  • Repeat this process with all of the paper bags.

    The more paper bags you have on hand, the bigger your paper poinsettia will be.

  • Glue

    the

    back of

    the house

    and glue an identical house to it.

  • If you are satisfied with the number of paper bags, grasp the two end pieces to pull the poinsettia made of paper and

    stick

    to its

    ends together

    .

  • If you want to make more than one paper star, repeat this process for other homemade Christmas decorations.

  • If you

    want to

    hang up

    the tinkered paper

    stars

    , you can

    punch them

    and

    thread

    a

    cord through them

    .
