Frida Inspired Paper Doll Ornament + Free Printable

I just made a batch of these Frida inspired paper doll ornaments for my purple Christmas tree and thought I’d post it as a tutorial! Free printable and everything! We’ve been decorating our retail store and I’ve been making a variety of ornaments. These are my favorite!

Here is a link to a free PDF printable you can use to make ornaments for your personal use: frida-dollSingle1 

You can print it out on heavy cardstock, cut around the shape and use it as the base for your ornament!

I used the drawing I made of Frida and printed it on white cardstock, then my Crafty Chica papers with a Sizzix die – here is the link to the die! (affiliate)

See my video tutorial below!

I glued on washi tape, gems, feathers and each one came out with her own personality! Once it was all decorated, I cut a piece of twine and hot glued it to the back.

More ideas

If you want you can decorate the back as well, I didn’t. But I might in the future! You could also use glittered cardstock for her dress, and add tiny flowers on her head. So many ideas! And here they are! I made five of them!

PHOENIX PEEPS: I’m going to hold a $5 Make and Take with these at Mucho Más Art Studio this Saturday from 12-3! 1736 E. McDowell Road, Phoenix, AZ. I’ll have all of the supplies and you can make two of them for your tree or for use as gift tags, whatever you’d like!

This is the die I used! Related: Piñata makeover inspired by Frida Kahlo (Just Don’t Hit It!)

  1. I really love this ornament and as I print out Frida she is really big. By the time I add a dress shes gonna be too big for an ornament for my little 4ft tree. Maybe Ill just have to make a wreath out of her.
