Aren't these pretty? They're made of folded strips of paper.
I am itching to make chains of them and string them around for the month of December.
For directions, go here.
Or ... follow this cool video I just found!
The comments at YouTube include: "When I was in grade school, our teacher showed us how to make these, but I never really learned, she did it for us. After completion the teacher dipped them in melted colored wax,which made them sturdy. After completion we took them home as Christmas Tree Ornaments."
