Liberty Christmas Baubles – Deck the Balls with Liberty fa la la la la
Deck the balls this Christmas – I so love Christmas and wanted to share this really cute and quite frankly, dead easy crafting project with you. No sewing on my blog today – simply cutting and sticking of lovely Liberty to make these super cute Liberty Christmas baubles.
This is a really stunning way to use up any spare Liberty scraps of fabric and any baubles that don’t match your colour scheme anymore. It simply uses plastic baubles in a variety of sizes, scraps of Liberty fabric and PVA glue – it’s a really easy but fun crafting project that you can sit down and do with family or friends. The finished result makes a really lovely decoration for your home.
I love dreaming up new ideas of what to do next with my vast stash of Liberty fabrics. Christmas is such a busy time that it’s quite refreshing to take some time out and do something I love – making pretty things out of Liberty fabric. I made them in Christmassy greens and reds but they would look amazing in multi colours or a colour to suit your Christmas colour scheme
How to make them:
Step 1: Get hold of old baubles (by delving into your storage space!) or buy new ones from any crafting shop, buy some PVA glue and get some Liberty scraps here
Step 2: Cut the fabric scraps into small pieces (the right size depends on the size of your bauble) – random shapes is fine.
Step 3: Glue the cut pieces of fabric onto the bauble making sure you use lots of glue. It’s fine to cover over the top of the fabric with glue as it dries clear. Cover the whole bauble with the different fabrics.
Step 4: Let them dry overnight and then hang up at Christmas time to decorate your home.
Done – so easy and fun!
