Recycled Cardboard Coffee Cup Sleeve Ornaments

The Tiny Funnel
...otherwise known as cardboard beads, these simple ornaments are made from recycled cardboard coffee sleeves from Starbucks (or Panera- they have a lovely texture too). This is day 2 of my Christmas Ornament challenge for myself.

  • Cardboard coffee cup sleeves
  • Hot glue
  • Paint
  • Glitter Mod Podge or white glue
  • String
  1. Open the cardboard sleeve and trim it into a triangle shape. You can use pinking shears to give it fancy edges.
  2. Place the textured surface face down on the table.
  3. Use a dab of hot glue to add a knotted loop of string to the wide inside surface of the cardboard triangle.
  4. Start at the wide end and roll the triangle toward the point.
  5. Add a dab of hot glue to the end to hold the end in place.
  6. Paint the ornament any way you like- or/and use Mod Podge or white glue to add glitter. 
Experiment cutting the triangle in different ways- wavy edges or add extra cardboard pieces.
