Chic and stylish, these ornaments will definitely help upgrade your holiday decor this season.

A few different crafting skills are needed for this project, so we consider it an intermediate-level craft. We have created a new pattern for these honeycomb ornaments to allow for more honeycomb and the 60 layers of paper make them very sturdy to last many many years.As with all of our honeycomb projects, we definitely recommend using a cutting machine for both precision and speed. However, if you’d prefer to cut your pieces by hand — we’ve got you covered! Just download the PDF version of our template to get started! If you love honeycomb paper craft, then be sure to check out the rest of our honeycomb collection. Be sure to check out our post on How to Make an Embroidery Floss Tassel to complete this ornament.
While we genuinely adore the bright festive colors of the holiday season, we wanted these Cardstock & Wooden Bead Honeycomb Ornaments to evoke the serene beauty of the season. Though we chose our cardstock in cool blue, white, and gray tones — don’t feel those are your only options. As always feel free to customize as you see fit.
In addition to a more subdued color palette, we also wanted to stick with natural fibers and colors to embellish these beautiful ornaments. The combination of our cotton embroidery floss, felt balls and wooden beads really tie this piece together. We love the fusion of textures and tones, which results in a truly unique ornament for your tree.
One of our favorite things about ornaments is their fabulous potential for gifting. While, of course, it makes sense to use them in your own decorations, there’s something so special about crafting with the intention of spreading joy. Whip these up for an office gift exchange or “just because.”
Once your honeycomb ornaments are complete, we’d love to see the magic you’ve crafted! Share your creations in our vibrant crafters’ community or tag us on Instagram using #MadeWithLia.
