Guess what? Christmas doesn’t need to be tacky. If you’re tinsel adverse like me (I feel itchy just looking at it!), this might be the Christmas craft project for you.

HP printers have asked me to create some easy printable Christmas decorations for their Tumblr feed. I created these hanging prisms which are made from paper, just printed out and glued together.

They are a super cheap way to add a modern touch to your Christmas decorations, and they aren’t overly festive, so they would make great hanging decorations all year around.

  • A printer
  • 4 sheets of A4 paper – I used premium matte photo paper because it is thicker than regular printer stock.
  • Scissors
  • Glue for the tabs
  • String/twine
  • Download the printables for the colours and template here.

Using the printables: Print the template PDF first (four pages) then turn over these printed sheets and feed them back into the printer to print the colours PDF on the other side. Cut and glue the tabs. The tabs are numbered so you can easily see which ones to join together.

You can see the Christmas printables here on tumblr with HP.
