Easy DIY: Christmas Decorations



We are 12 days away from Christmas and so I think it is time to do a Christmasy blogpost! 

While I was decorating my house, I thought it would be a great idea to try to do my own Christmas decorations. If you go to the supermarket or any mall, you’ll probably find pretty and affordable bits and pieces, but why not get creative and do them yourself, right? :) 

With that on mind, I went to Walmart and got this affordable set of silver baubles. You can also use old ornaments that you may want to modify. The set contained three different styles of baubles, but I mainly used the plain ones. I thought these would be the easiest to decorate since they are plain, kind of like a white canvas, but you can use whichever one you like! Next, I got a regular liquid glue and glitter of different colors. It has probably been like 10 years since the last time I used glitter, so I felt like a child again when I was choosing which ones to get.


Once I got all the materials, I prepared my working station. You may want to cover the table you’ll be working on with newspaper because the glitter may fall and, trust me, it’s hard to clean it afterwards :P I placed the glitter and stars on a plate. This way it would be easier for me to sprinkle it over the bauble or grab different colors without having to open the plastic bags with my fingers full of glitter. 


I didn’t have any designs planed. I just started doing different figures with the glue, then sprinkled the glitter on top of it, and hoped for the best haha. As you can see in the photo below, I drew a line and sprinkle green glitter over it, and also I drew various circles and placed red stars on top. Other designs that I did were: blue stars, two lines of golden and green stars, circles with different colors of glitter mixed together, etc. First I did one side of the bauble, let it dry, and then continued with the other side. 




I really had fun doing them :) Although they may not look as professional, I was happy with the results. It’s very easy to do them and takes no time. Additionally, I thought this could be a nice Christmas tradition/activity to do with the whole family.


I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know what you think of it :)
