Woven Paper Christmas Heart Ornaments

Almost every year in December we drive over the border to Denmark to see the small towns and their Christmas markets. There is a serenity in the air during the weeks before Christmas. Instead of lots of stress like we see here where we live here in Germany, the streets in the Danish towns seem calm and quiet, almost tranquil. The store windows and the homes are embellished in simple and natural decorations out of paper and the colors of red and white dominate them. There is no glitter to be seen. Every year I notice woven paper hearts hanging as decorations in the shops and remembered making these also some years ago. I decided to make some again to hang in the windows here.

These hearts are like a mix of the Fröbel Stars (German Paper Stars) because of how they are made and look similar to and the Danish Woven Hearts. The folding technique is easy to learn. Just try it a couple of times and you will see how simple it is.

For this project you will need:

- two 1 x 30 centimeter strips of color “a” (both sides of the paper should be the same color/pattern)
- two 1 x 30 centimeter strips fo color “b” (both sides of the paper should be the same color/pattern)
- a ruler
- scissors
