YAAAY! I can finally give in to my Christmassy feeling! :D
Honestly, I usually dread Christmas because it's so BUSY and I get stressed out, but this year I've decided to chill out, take it easy and I'm SUPER excited! I've been in a Christmas mood for weeks - crazy!
So, here's my first of many Christmas tutes - sequined tree baubles!
I remember making these in primary school, so they bring back memories!
You Will Need:
* A Styrofoam ball
What To Do:
These are pretty straight forward and you really can just pick up a ball and pinning sequins on whichever way you like, but I'll share my approach ;)
First I use some ribbon to section the ball. I wrap one length around the whole circumference of the ball, pinning at the top, bottom and half way down each side (4 pins total), then repeat with a second piece of ribbon at a 90 degree angle to the first so the ball is sectioned into 4 parts, like so:
Then I fill a section with sequins! Pin them on, overlapping each sequin slightly and making sure they are tucked under the ribbon so you don't see any white. You could also paint or colour in the Styrofoam before pinning to be extra sure the white was covered :)
Since I've got 4 sections, I did two in red and two in green.
Nearly done! Just take a piece of ribbon, tie a knot in it and pin the knot to the top of your bauble.
Hooray! A sparkly, shiny, pretty and best of all handmade Christmas bauble!
