Christmas art and crafts like this easy paper ornament craft are always fun, they keep the kids entertained and allow them to explore their creativity whilst also starting building their understanding of visual arts. 

We love doing art projects all year, every year... but especially during the merriest part of the year!

Keeping that in mind, we created this colourful ornament template inspired by Mondrian's artwork style. Using our ornament template not only can you make your own Mondrian ornament, you can also use the template for different ornament designs. 

Kids can truly experiment and use their imagination to create whatever their little hearts desire!

Who is Mondrian?

Piet Mondrian was born in The Netherlands, all the way back in 1872. He expressed his vision of art through colours, shapes, and lines. He would use red, yellow, and blue (primary colours) most of the time. Some of his most famous paintings, such as the "Trafalgar Square," featured geometric lines and shapes in primary colours.

The Mondrian ornament we are sharing today has been inspired by his use of line and bright colours. Before starting this craft you may want to show the kids different artworks by Mondrian and tell them a little bit about his art so they can get inspired. 

If you want to keep growing your collection of kid-made ornaments, look no further! Have a look at these salt dough ornaments or this ugly sweater ornament that comes with a template. These mitten ornaments made from homemade clay are adorable too!

STEP 3: Add some colour

Spread out a selection of coloured pencils, markers, and watercolours. Choose your favourite medium and start adding colour to the different sections you have created on your ornament template. 

Keep to primary colours and black as seen in much of Mondrian's work or experiment with your own colour choices.

STEP 4: Final touches.

Leave your ornament template to dry if needed and then cut it out. To thicken up your ornament you may want to add a layer of cardboard to the back. If you wish to do this trace the ornament shape onto cardboard and cut it out. Once you have both shape cutouts, glue the template cutout onto the cardboard one.

The final step is to add a piece of yarn or ribbon to make this craft a ready-to-use ornament that you can add to your Christmas tree right away! Make a hole in the ornament to thread your yarn or ribbon through or simply tape your yarn or ribbon to the back of your ornament.
