So many of you loved my Painted Pumpkin post so much that I'm back with another big DIY post. This is the final post in my #7DaysOfChristmas and you can read all the other Christmas posts here. So if you fancy getting a bit crafty and pimping up your baubles, then here are 8 DIY Christmas Bauble designs that you can try right now on your existing Christmas decorations to give them a festive makeover!
I used some plain white baubles from B&Q as well as some of my Next baubles. Plus my gorge tree is the silver pine from Next too ;-)
Plus stay tuned till the end of this post for my big #7DaysOfChristmas giveaway where you can win lots of items from my Gift Guides.
MARBLED CHRISTMAS BAUBLES
Fill a container with water deep enough to submerge the baubles.
Pour in your chosen nail polish colours for marble I used grey, black metallic and silver.
Swirl the colours gently using a stick.
Attach your bauble to a stick
Dip the bauble into the water turning it to get the nail polish to stick all over.
Hang up to dry.
WOOL WRAPPED CHRISTMAS BAUBLES
Choose a plain bauble and type of wool.
You'll also need a glue gun.
Start at the top and apply glue the bauble and stick down the end of the wool.
Start to wrap round the bauble gluing a small line at a time.
Wrap and glue around the bauble till you reach the bottom.
Snip off the end and glue down.
GOLD GLITTER CHRISTMAS BAUBLES
Using washi or masking tape, tape your design out.
Paint with gold paint.
Whilst still wet sprinkle with glitter.
Once dry peel off the masking tape.
Clean up edges by scraping off paint with knife.
POM POM CHRISTMAS BAUBLES
Using glue gun apply a dot of glue and press on multi coloured pom poms
Alternate the placement and colours of poms poms
Glue poms poms on till there are no gaps left.
BLACK & WHITE CHRISTMAS BAUBLES
These are the simplest to make. Use a plain bauble and draw your design on using a sharpie marker.
FEATHER CHRISTMAS BAUBLES
Chop down craft feathers to shorter length.
Start glueing them around the bauble starting half way down.
Then glue a row of feathers above with ends tucked into bauble cap.
Finish off top and hide feather ends by gluing pearl or jewels around the cap.
CHALKBOARD CHRISTMAS BAUBLES
Paint plain baubles with matte black paint.
I used a tester pot.
Hang them up to dry
Apply a second coat if needed.
Draw your design using a white chalk pen or white paint.
( I couldn't find mine so used a grout pen!!)
FILLED CHRISTMAS BAUBLES
Use any empty bauble you have from gifts etc
Fill with your chosen item I used gold painted leaves.
Sprinkle inside some glitter.
Close the bauble up.
Shake to distribute the glitter.
Add ribbon to match the contents.
