Lady and the Tramp Paper Ornaments Craft
Lady and the Tramp is such a classic Disney film, isn’t it? When the upper-middle-class American cocker spaniel named Lady meets a street-smart, stray schnauzer called Tramp, they embark on many adventures, including that iconic scene where they share a plate of spaghetti and meatballs in the alley outside Tony’s!
The 1995 animation has had a live-action remake for the launch of Disney+ (which I can’t view at the moment as it’s not yet available in the UK), so it feels right to be sharing these lovely Christmas ornaments inspired by Lady and the Tramp!
There are plenty more Disney ornament crafts on their way to The Purple Pumpkin Blog, so make sure you are part of The Pumpkin Patch (details below) so that you don’t miss the tutorials when they are released!

How To Make Lady and the Tramp Ornaments
I’ve got several step-by-step photos to guide you through making these Disney ornaments, and there is also a tutorial video over on my YouTube channel that you can watch and save to your Playlists for future reference. (Don’t forget to subscribe while you are there!)
Assembling Lady and the Tramp is really easy – here is how you do it!
Simply print the template onto the corresponding colored paper or card and cut the pieces out. The template has the pieces for both of the ornaments, so where it gives two colors, you need to print on both of these colors to make the pair of dogs.
If you want to make just Tramp, his colors are gray with a red collar. If you want o make just Lady, she has a blue collar and is red-orange, yellow-orange, and tan.
Alternatively, you could print onto regular paper and trace around the pieces onto the colored card, especially if you are worried that it won’t go through your printer. You may have to add some details back in such as the lines on the collar.
Space out the ears pieces evenly and use a glue stick to attach at them to the top (back) of the head.
Using the photos as a guide, stick the fur pieces, following by the collar and tag. Leave to dry.
If you want to add glitter to your ornament (the option is up to you) apply white school glue to the center of the tag and the line above it, then sprinkle with gold glitter. Shake off the excess.
Then add glue to the rest of the collar and use blue glitter for Lady and red glitter for Tramp. Shake off the excess and leave to dry.
Just one more step which is sticking a loop of black string or ribbon to the back of the ornaments. Leave everything to dry completely before hanging on your tree!
If you want the decorations to last longer, you could run them through a laminator before attaching the hanging loop. When cutting out after laminating the ornaments, make sure you leave a slight edge so that the laminating sheets do not come apart!Lady and the Tramp is a beloved Disney movie and if you love these adorable dogs, then you simply must make this paper ornaments craft for your Christmas tree! #Disney #Christmas #Crafts
