I love crafts. It’s the element of having fun and being creative that I love. So when I was in Hobbycraft recently, I did a bit of a blow out and brought a number of items to make Christmas crafts with.
I had done a bit of research on Pinterest before hand, so I had some idea’s I wanted to recreate. The craft I will be sharing with you in this post is so simple and equally effective.
What you’ll need is…
A pack of clear plastic baubles (£2 for 6 from Hobbycraft) and a selection of materials to fill the baubles with. I also brought some red string to use to tie the baubles when completed.
The first bauble I filled with plastic beads (£1 per bag) from Hobbycraft. I liked the idea of pink and pearl but you could equally be more traditional and use green and red beads for example.
Simple place the beads into the bauble. Close the bauble and finish with some string and ta da, your own designed bauble.
Here are the other baubles I decorated:
Various sized pom poms from a £5 bag of pom poms from Hobbycraft.
Alternatively you can use sequins to fill a bauble. These I had purchased from The Works.
I also had some gold and silver stars confetti from Paperchase to fill one of the baubles.
For this bauble I stuck inside the bauble gold glitter stars from Hobbycraft (£1 for a pack).
Lastly I filled this bauble with pink feathers from haberdashers C&H fabrics.
The options of what to fill each bauble with is endless. You could use cut up strips of coloured paper, put a picture or a festive character inside. It’s up to your imagination.
I hope this has given you some inspiration for creating your own Christmas baubles. It’s fun to do (for both adults and children!).
Look out for my next Christmas craft post coming soon!
