We have been doing crafts at Guides this evening but this is something you can do at home with your children and make your tree look extra special with all homemade bauble tree decorations. You can buy different shapes and sizes to decorate and then it’s all about you and children using their imagination. You can use paint, glue or sit things inside the baubles and you can also add some chocolates to them and see how long the last cause they never do in my house. It’s really simple to do and you can be as clean or messy as you like.
You will need to purchase some of these clear baubles to begin with, we purchased ours like the below from Amazon
Once you have your baubles its then decision time on what to decorate them as. You can use paint, tissue paper and glue, you can fill the inside and hide chocolate in there, let your imagination guide you.
How to make a Rudolph:
You will need a round bauble
Something for a red nose we have used a pom pom but you could use a button, or red gem that’s sticks on.
Pipe Cleaner for the antlers and hanging hoop
Marker for the mouth
- You first pour brown pain inside the bauble and close it up and then shake it till all the inside is covered.
- You then add your eyes nose and mouth to the once side.
- There is then a hole at the top of the bauble that you feed your pipe cleaner through to create the antlers and bend them how you wish.
- You can decorate the baubles however you wish and be a bright and festive as you choose, Kaitlin made a brightly coloured one as well using varies colours of paint on the inside of the baubles and letting them run together giving like a paint explosion effect.
This is great find for the kids and you can have your very own home made baubles or the tree making it even more special for everyone to see.
