Welcome to my first Christmas craft of the year, the tree is going up this weekend and I am excited for festive crafts and baking! I have plenty of other festive crafts you can visit here, but today we are making personalised baubles.
I initially started making these baubles for my Etsy shop, and they started life as a memorial bauble, a great way to remember the loved ones who can’t be with us at Christmas. It then evolved into personalised baubles for babies. The craft is pretty much the same so I can show you how to make them & if you don’t have the time to make them, then you can always buy them in the shop!
What you will Need
Clear Glass or Plastic Bauble
Sequins, snowflake charms, 12mm white satin ribbon, white feather (optional)
Silver glitter vinyl
How to Make
Take your glass bauble and remove the silver cap, fill the bottom of your bauble with sequins. Push a white feather inside the bauble, if you are not making a memorial bauble then leave the feather out, you can always add some paper snowflakes.
Cut the silver string off the bauble and thread on your snowflake charm, tie it onto the silver bauble cap and then replace the top back on the bauble so the charm dangles inside.
Cut a length of ribbon to roughly 13cms, thread onto your bauble and tie a knot at the top. Use more ribbon to tie a bow and then hot glue the bow on your ribbon string as shown.
I used the Cricut Maker to cut the names onto silver glitter vinyl but if you don’t have an electronic cutting machine then you can die-cut them or even hand cut them. You can even just buy glitter alphabet stickers too.
In a few easy steps you have a personalised Christmas bauble to sit beautifully on your tree. If you make one of these baubles then I would love to see so make sure you tag me on @i_heart_maggie for Instagram or @IHeart_Maggie on twitter.
