DIY: Anthro-Inspired Paper Ship

Here is fun little DIY paper ship ornament, inspired by Anthropologie’s $14.00 Christmas decoration (or, at my house, all-year-round decoration). I’ll show you how to make your very own paper ship from simple and basic items you probably have around your house. Check it out:

Done! It’s certainly a bit more rugged than Anthro’s version, but it has lots of character, right? Plus, ours is way more colorful.

Until tomorrow,
