Decoupage Christmas balls

We were really lucky recently to receive a box full of cute collage items for making Xmas decorations from a dear friend.  In it were a few boxes of plain Xmas balls, lots of glue and glitter and a pile of brightly coloured napkins.  A couple of years ago we had decoupaged plain coasters with Xmas serviettes and they were pretty cute, plus have lasted really well, so we thought we would have a go doing it with these balls.  The kids had a fab time in the process!

We’ve had a couple of messy weeks with nasty strep infections and a few of us down with tonsillitis…so yesterday we decided to handmake a few Xmas presents.  I had seen a gorgeous poured cherry blossom painting on Facebook and wondered if it was something the children could have a go at. I found a youtube clip showing the process: if you are interested, this is the link here.  Otherwise these photos should show you how to do it if you are interested.  For those in NZ, I got my supplies from Warehouse Stationery.
