Cute bauble upcycle

Aw, how cute! This sweet bauble upcycle is perfect to do with the kiddos… here’s how.

Track down some cheap baubles in a charity shop; mine were 20p each.

Start by painting your baubles white – you may need a few coats.

Hang them up to dry in between coats.

Next grab some black acrylic paint.

If you fancy experimenting, as Kitty and I did, you’ll also need a pencil with an eraser end, a stencil and some gold sticky stars.

My favourite is this spotty one!

The striped one worked out okay…

… and the gold start one is super cute. It may need a coat of varnish to keep the stars in place!

I added ribbon bows, yellow buttons and painted the strings pink (try not to get pink paint all over your ribbons, like I did!)

Super cute though, eh? And for 60p, not bad at all.

    Oh, what a lovely comment Susan, thank you. Yes, the times spent crafting with our young family members are really very precious xxx

    I think you made more than these cute ornaments – you made some pretty sweet memories, too! When my daughters were young, I bought a small and very inexpensive tree and we made ornaments for it together. They were very simple crafts but my now-adult daughters still talk about those ornaments (which have survived pretty well over the years and will adorn their own trees this year.)
