DIY 3D Paper Ball





Ultra-cool Christmas tree decorations!


Be different this Christmas and decorate your tree and home with colorful, modern 3D paper balls!


These are a cool twist to be part of a table setting, fireplace design or wherever else you would like to show them off!


Here’s how:


Download the PDF template required here:

Large ball (10″) Print/cut 12 sheets
Medium ball (5″) Print/cut 2 sheets
Small ball (3″) Print/cut 1 sheet

Download the Silhouette studio file here:

Small ball (3″)



Un-zip the file; cut 1 sheet (The shapes can be scaled up or down in Silhouette Studio if you’d like to change the size.)









If you want to hang your ornament, you might like to add a string before assembling the ball.


We placed a piece of tape on the back of one flower so the hole wouldn’t tear, and then used a needle to pull string through, forming a loop on the front side.


We secured the ends of the string on the back side with another piece of tape.




Use the slits to join petals together.


Keep adding shapes, connecting as you go, so that every petal is connected to another petal on a neighboring flower.




It might be helpful to think of the first piece as the “north pole,” and then add a row of five flowers encircling it. At this point, the ball is half finished.


Here’s what it looks like upside-down:





Attach the next row of five flower shapes, and finally, add the “south pole” piece to finish the globe.



Merry Christmas… Enjoy your super modern dec’s!
