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!
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.
