Add a touch of sweetness to your holiday tree with these colorful and cute 3D papercut ornaments. With simple lines and solid colors, these ornaments evoke a retro candy feel. Their whimsy comes in the way that they twirl around, creating a striped visual effect as they turn.

If these ornaments aren’t quite your style, we have plenty of other DIY ornaments on our site for you to craft. From macramé to felt to copper, we’ve created many different looks using all kinds of materials.
