Materials & Tools Used in This Craft

Full instructions are found in the printable tutorial card at the end of this post, but here is a quick outline so you know what to expect from the craft.

I highly recommend always reading everything all the way through before starting any project so you understand all the steps required.

A few simple craft supplies are needed for this paper ornament:

How To Make Jessie Ornaments

I’ve got several step-by-step photos to guide you through making these Disney ornaments, 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. Print the page with the belt buckle onto dark yellow.

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 embellishments.

Cut Ornament Pieces

Use the photos as a guide for where each piece should go – place them down first and make sure you have them in the correct order before sticking them down with a glue stick.

Start with the large white circle as the base, and then stick the dark yellow semi-circle piece at the bottom, the yellow piece with the squiggly line across it at the top, then stick the white collar piece on the very top over the yellow piece.

Next up is the blue piece on top of the dark yellow, then the cow print piece on top of that.


Jessie’s hat comes next, along with the belt buckle, and finally the Mickey ears at the very back. Make sure they are evenly spaced.


Glitter is optional, but if you have got glitter, then you totally should use it!

Add white glue to the rim of Jessie’s hat and sprinkle white glitter on top. Tap off the excess.

Now carefully squeeze glue following the squiggly line and add red glitter, shaking off the excess again. The final bit of glitter is on the belt buckle using gold.

You can add black glitter to the cow print too if you like. Leave everything 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!

  • White School Glue (PVA Glue)

  1. Download and print out the Jessie ornament template onto corresponding colored papers or cardstock (Link in the blog post). Print the page with the belt buckle on dark yellow, not yellow as listed. Cut out and set aside.
  2. Use the photos as a guide to which pieces go where, as there are several layers for this ornament. Layer first and then stick down with a glue stick.
  3. Start with the large white circle as the base, and stick the semi-circle dark yellow piece to the bottom, and the yellow piece with the squiggly line at the top. The white collar piece then goes on top of the yellow piece.
  4. Then add the blue piece at the bottom, followed by the cow-print piece.
  5. The hat goes at the top, with the ears evenly spaced on either side behind the hat.
  6. If you are adding glitter, apply white school glue to the parts you want to add sparkle to and sprinkle the glitter over. Shake off the excess and leave to dry.
  7. Here are the glitter parts: white hat trim, red squiggly line, gold belt buckle, black cow print.
  8. Finally, form a hanging loop with a piece of string or ribbon and stick to the back of the ornament.
  9. If you want, you can laminate the ornaments so that it lasts longer. Before attaching the loop, run it through a laminator and cut away the excess. Make sure you leave a slight edge as you cut it out so that the laminating sheets don't fall away! Attach the loop to back.
  10. Hang your Cowgirl Jessie ornament on your Christmas tree!
