7 USEFUL TIPS FOR MAKING YOUR OWN CHRISTMAS BAUBLES AND DECORATIONS

Now, it can be very easy to have big plans to make beautiful Christmas decorations that are so good they look shop-bought but, in reality, turn out to look like something you’d rather hide than display. 

  1. Give yourself plenty of time ahead of the Christmas period to avoid a last-minute panic.
  2. Be honest with yourself about how skilled you are at crafting and how much time you actually have.
  3. Think about what Christmas decorations you already have and how any new ones will fit in. Download my free printable Christmas Decor planner to help
  4. Gather your basic craft kit supplies in advance. For example:
  5. Order or buy all the specific supplies needed in plenty of time
  6. If you are going to use glitter, buy eco-friendly glitter, as regular glitter is dreadful for the environment. I like this biodegradable glitter by Hemway.
  7. Check what you have around your home that can be repurposed or upcycled into Christmas baubles or ornaments
