Here’s what we used

  • Wood slices
  • Acrylic paint pens
  • Foam
  • Ribbon
  • Glue gun

How to make our wood slice snowman ornaments.

Take your white paint and cover the front of your wood slice and then pop it aside to dry

Use your paint markers to give the snowman a face. We added two coal eyes, a little point carrot nose and a wiggly smiley mouth.

Add any additional decoration such as our foam hat, a bow, a bobble hat or whatever takes your fancy! We love using foam instead of paper as it tends to last better year after year.

Cut off a length of ribbon and tie it into a loop, glue the loop onto the back of your snowman and once dry your adorable Wood slice snowman ornaments are ready to hang and display!

Paper plate baubles

Paper plate baubles

We’re finally on the last school term of the year here in the uk and that means one thing; Christmas is right around the corner and I’m not sure who is more excited, me or the kids! For our first Christmas craft this year we’ve been busy making one our favourites, these jazzy paper plate baubles. We love using these as part of our window displays, they’re easy to mass produce and each one turns out unique which means these are great to make and display for groups such as schools as well as at home!

Here’s what we used

  • Paper plates
  • Tissue paper
  • Red card
  • Tinsel chenille stem
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Glue gun / sticky tape

How to make our paper plate baubles

Start by decorating your paper plate to make the bauble. We glued several different coloured squares of tissue paper onto ours as they will be hanging in the window and tissue paper looks great in the light but you could almost anything. Some popular options include paints, pens and stickers.

Take your coloured card and cut out a trapezium type shape to make the top of the bauble and glue it in place on one side of the plate.

Take a length of pipe cleaner and twist it into a loop to make the ‘string’ for the bauble. Use a glue gun or tape to secure the loop to the back of the trapezium shape as above and once dry your baubles are ready to display!
