Decorate Christmas Baubles

Father Christmas on a bauble!

Father Christmas meets Christmas baubles: the ultimate Christmas decoration! What happens when Rudolph the Reindeer, a snowy fir tree and Father Christmas with a sleigh full of presents "land" on a little Christmas bauble? The result is clearly an ace Christmas decoration for the dinner table or a great home decoration for the Advent season! Vivien from Crafts mit Herz shows you how to design the baubles in this crafting guide.

You need that

  • Christmas baubles
  • White paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Snowflakes
  • Snow Glue
  • Hot glue gun
  • Snowy Fir Trees
  • Winter figures
  • …and a little decoration

1. Snow flurries or "down is the new up"!

A centrepiece is a definite must-have on a festively laid Christmas table! The Christmas baubles with Christmas figures that I’m presenting to you here are a real eyecatcher. For this, you only need a few Christmas baubles in the colour of your choice, Snowflakes, Acrylic Paint, glue, Christmas figures and Snowy Fir Trees.
First, prime a small area on top of the bauble with White Acrylic Paint and allow it to dry. This will be the base of your snowy surface. Incidentally: "up" is the side that is exactly opposite the Christmas bauble’s hanger, so, if you will, the former "down". :)
Coat the white surface with Snow Glue and dip this spot in the Snowflakes (which you previously sprinkled on a plate) and gently tap off the bauble. Allow everything to dry.

2. Fir tree, Rudolph and Santa: off to the snow with you!

The bauble is now decorated! Get the figures and trees that you would like to use ready. It’s best to loosely hold the parts over the bauble as a test to see what you like best. When you’re satisfied with the setting, stick on the figures with a drop of hot glue. I thought Rudolph the Reindeer (okay, if we’re being honest, he’s out of the "Roe Deer" set, so he’s more like Rudolph the Roe Deer) and the Father Christmas were so fab that I glued the two together with the sled and a fir tree in the snowy landscape. By the way, the fir trees are available with or without snow, so if you want to decorate for a green Christmas...

3. The finishing touches and decoration

Your bauble is actually done now. If you want to make the whole thing stable, you can remove the hanger from the bauble and glue the open ‘base’ into a bottle cap. This can be achieved with hot glue and the following applies: the more the better. ;) To make the cap look less out of place, you can cover it with a nice strip of washi tape. It looks great and the bauble is then also good and secure.

I made two baubles straight away, draped them on a small doily with Christmas lettering on it, added some Decorative Fir Trees, et voilà – this extraordinary Advent and Christmas decoration is done!
