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!

gardening with kids of all ages

Anyone that knows me well, knows I’m very passionate about my garden!  We don’t have huge amounts of money to spend on making a fancy one, but every year we grown lots of vegetables and fruit from seed and its a process my children are very much involved with.

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.
