I hope you enjoyed this Origami Christmas Ornaments list and helped you decide what to fold and hang in your tree.

I really love all those models and cant wait to fold them myself. 

If you decide to fold them and post them on social media, don’t forget to mention the creator if you can. I did my best to find who designed them, not only who folded them.

I’m sure the artist would love to see his or her creation folded by you guys.

Have a magical Christmas!
