19 Christmas Tree Paper Decorations for Delicate Look

While baubles, balls, and finials are considered essential ornamental items for a Christmas tree, origami decorations are the ones that give any fir crown a complete makeover of a celebrated Christmas tree. Paper decorations can bring out the nuance and thoughtfulness to the Nativity celebrations.

Making paper decoration in the house during Christmastide holidays can be a really fun activity. However, it can become pretty bothersome if no one in the house is an expert in origami folding and finessing. In such cases, there are strong chances that you may end up wasting a lot of stationery supply and your valuable holiday time.

With the spate of independent artists on e-commerce websites like Amazon, it has now become pretty easy to get intricately designed origami decorations for Christmas trees. These origami decorations are not just crafted with fine hands, but many of them also feature some interesting themes and cultural references. And on top of that, their reasonable prices make DIY paper decorations look more taxing.

For your convenience, we have compiled a list of 19 ready-made origami Christmas Tree Paper Decorations available in the market for the upcoming Christmas decorations. It is important to mention here that these products are not numbered in preferential order. It is just done for better readability.

The item from which we are starting off our list is a set of 3 origami stars. Each star is folded from different color papers that are patterned with figures associated with Christmas (frills, snowflakes, polka dots, etc).  They are large enough that even a string of three stars can accentuate a tall fir.

Here, the Kusudama balls are made of superbly aged torn papers of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Moreover, you can get them with hanging ribbons that make it perfect Harry Potter artifact e.g. silver and green ribbons for Slytherin House, scarlet and gold for Gryffindor.

What makes these vintage harry potter-themed Kusudama balls more alluring is their handmade construction. An artist based in North Carolina crafts each and every piece with her own hands. Apart from a Christmas tree décor, you can also use them as fan pulls and general decoration item.

Lord of the Rings Book Glass Christmas Tree Ornament
  • Handmade.
  • Made with pages from damaged LOTR books that were headed to...

But it is not a Kusudama ball. The Lord of the Ring Paper décor is actually a small glass globe that is filled with well-aged cutouts from some of the earliest editions of the books. These cutouts are carefully rolled to keep some of the text visible so that avid readers can easily identify the trivia enclosed in the glass globe.  

The globe is then sealed with a glued silver ringed cap. Ribbons in more than a dozen colors are available so you can easily complement these paper-glass items with the rest of the décor. It is important to mention here that you don’t need to be a fan of the books to get them. The combination of glass casing and vintage paper rolls make them equally good as general decoration pieces.

For instance, the above-reviewed the Lord of the Rings Christmas decoration is a perfect combo of glass and paper. And this product also has the similar make.

This is another paper tree decoration enclosed in a glass bauble. And here the cutout pieces are from a music book. The glass globes are capped and attached with colorful ribbons.

Short Buying Guide for Paper Christmas Decorations

We have covered you for your origami requirements of the upcoming Christmastide with those 19 high-quality products. However, it is still better to have a general idea of purchasing the right paper decorations. For that matter, we are going to share some important point here.

Type of Paper

You will find most of the origami decorations made of simple plain paper or tissue paper. While plain ones can be folded with more immaculateness, tissues are relatively resistant to warping. If you are going to use origami ornaments around children or outdoors, then we would suggest you go with the latter type of paper.

Having said that, origami decorations generally have shorter shelf life due to their delicate nature. So, in many cases, it may not matter if they are made of plain or tissue papers.

Color/Print of Paper

As you have noticed, the majority of products we have discussed here are carved out of simple white paper. And the reason is pretty simple i.e. to give snowy, wintery feel to your Christmastide décor. Nonetheless, colorful options are also available (we have also discussed a few) that can help you to create a certain decoration theme.

Some origami pieces are also carved out of printed papers (e.g. Harry Potter, X-Men paper decorations, etc). If you want to keep your Christmas decorations trendy, then you can go with these printed origami pieces pertaining different references.

Shape of the Ornaments

All of us would be in agreement that snowflakes are the most popular shape among paper decorations for Christmas. They look closer to the real ones and makes great hanging decoration.  On the other hand, some delicately and uniquely designed origami pieces (the most of Luna Bazaar items) are also available. Pom-pom balls, flowers, and hand fans are also some of the popular choices.

If you are looking for heavy accenting, then we would recommend you to go for origami strings with lots of snowflakes pieces. For tree decoration and centerpieces, all the other options can come in handy.


Origami ornaments are generally low-priced than Christmas decorations made from other materials. However, some artisan works can be expensive but they are worth it since each and every piece is conceived by an artist himself/herself. We would suggest you to go with artisan work. By doing so, you won’t just support the community, but will also bring in some bonafide Christmas decorations.

We hope that this extensive review-based discussion about a range of paper decorations will help you in settling on the origami elements of this year’s winter decorations.
