Customised Christmas Baubles

Add a splash of personality to your Christmas tree with these colourful baubles. How many can you make?

Step 1

Cut 3 lengths of ribbon, all the same size and long enough to fit around your bauble. One will be your feature ribbon and two for decoration.

Step 2

Glue your feature ribbon around the middle of the bauble. Then glue your decoration ribbons along both edges of the feature ribbon.

Step 3

Apply dots of glue along your feature ribbon, adding sequins and gems for extra embellishment. Make small dots of glue above and below the ribbon for decoration.

Step 4

Leave to dry and admire your brilliant bauble hanging proudly on your Christmas tree. Or how about giving it as a gift?
