How to Make

  1. Take a two-part transparent bauble and colour the inside of each half with red Deco Pen until the surface is completely covered; when you look at the bauble from the other side, there shouldn't be any gaps in the colour.
  2. Take one bauble half and a white Deco Pen, and draw on the desired name onto the outer side, horizontally across the middle, as shown. If it goes wrong the first time, you can use a wet wipe to clean off and start again.
  3. Once the name is dry, use yellow Deco Pen to add spots around it, spacing them out equally. Again, if it goes wrong, you can use a wet wipe to clean the spots off around the name and start again.
  4. Fix the two parts of the bauble together. Apply several glue dots to the ribbon holder at the top of the bauble, then press on a large white pompom. This will be the head. Using glue dots, add a tiny pompom to each side of the head for ears and one for the nose. Add wiggle-eyes to finish off.
  5. Add two smaller white pompoms to each side of the bauble, as shown, using glue dots. These will be the paws and feet.
  6. Cut out two matching hat shapes from red self-adhesive felt, using the picture as a guide. Press them together, making sure the shapes line up around the edges, then add a pompom to one end. Cut a strip of white self-adhesive felt to fit the bottom edge of the hat and press on. Secure the hat to the head with glue dots.
  7. Cut a loop of ribbon and tie in a knot at one end. Either stitch into the pom pom head using a needle and white thread, or glue in place to secure.

Top Tip

Wait for the pen colour to dry before each stage to avoid smudging
