I love all of the delicate little pieces on my tree. . . the snowflakes, the feathers, the garland. . . but the give another texture and shape, I added these pinecone like paper balls to my paper decorated tree. As one reader pointed out, my paper tree ornaments are perfect for a child (or pet) friendly home. Though I made these balls in shades of metallic gold, silver and whites, they could also look adorable in bright teal, hot pink or traditional reds and greens. As elegant and complicated as they may look, I do promise you that they are very simple to make. Just follow my tutorial below to make these elegant and unbreakable Christmas balls. I will be using these for many years to come. Enjoy! ~ Lia
