How To Make Toy Story Alien Ornaments

I’ve got several step-by-step photos to guide you through making this Alien ornament, and there is also a slideshow 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 your Toy Story ornament 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.

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 will have to draw on some of the features (the pupils and mouth).

Cut Ornament Pieces

Use a glue stick to attach the blue piece to the body/face and stick the purple collar on top.

Space the eyes out across the top of the head and stick them down. Then stick the antennae at the middle top.

Finally, glue the ears in place evenly.

If you want to add glitter to your ornament – the option is up to you – apply white school glue to the purple collar and sprinkle over purple fine glitter. Add glue to the antennae and add green glitter. Shake off excess and leave to dry.

You can add glitter to whatever parts of the ornament that you like!

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!
