Advent glitter baubles

Make an Advent calendar with a difference this year by decorating some two-part plastic baubles with paint, glitter and string and then filling them with small gifts.

Glue and glitter

Apply a layer of decoupage varnish or glue to the inside of one of the bauble halves.

Fill with glitter

Fill the bauble half with glitter and shake off any excess. Leave the glue to dry. If you don’t want to use glitter, you can paint the inside of the bauble halves with craft paint. 

Numbers

Use a ceramic pen to number the baubles 1 -24.

Fill the baubles

Fill the baubles with small gifts, seal them and tie a piece of string around each one.
