How to Make

  1. Choose your colour combination first then cover the bauble with the stick-on stars. Allow the glue to dry.
  2. Cut off the hanging string. Apply some hot glue on the base of the bauble & stick centrally nto a circular branch.
  3. Cut a piece of craft wire, (to match the bauble) 25cm long, fold it in half & twist it tightly l eaving a small loop at the fold end.
  4. Feed the end of the twisted wire through the bauble loop & tighten the wire using the round nose pliers. If the wire slides around, add a dab of hot glue to the wire at the bauble loop to fix it still. Hold in position until glue dries.
  5. To create the loopy wire, wrap around a pencil/pen. Loosen it a little by pulling slightly.
  6. Brush some tacky glue over the top of the branch off cut, making sure you go right up to the bauble. Sprinkle iridescent white glitter over it. Shake off excess & allow to dry.
  7. Cut a piece of glitter card, ( matching the bauble) 2.5cm x 4cm & a piece of white card 1.5cm x 3cm. Write the name on the white card then stick it onto the glitter card, leaving an even border all around.
  8. Stick a self-adhesive dot onto the wire loop. Do not remove the backing. Stick the name card onto it.

Top Tip

To ensure the stick-on stars are super secure, add a dot of super tacky glue on the back before sticking onto bauble.
