Make it Monday: create your own unique decorations


Posted 29th October

Your Christmas decorations provide you with a great way to show off some personality, and create your own unique styles around the home

This year, why not take your festive preparation to the next level by customising your own set of baubles? It gives you a real chance to add some creativity and personalisation to the most wonderful time of year...

You will need

Dremel Glue Gun 930
Dremel 7 mm Colour Sticks (GG05)
Plain baubles
A selection of ribbons and braids
Sequins
Small glittery gems

Directions

1. Cut a length of ribbon long enough to fit around the bauble, adding a little extra to overlap the ends. Then, glue the ribbon around the bauble. Next, cut two lengths of braid and glue them along both edges of the ribbon on the bauble.

2. Work in small sections at a time so that the glue does not dry before the ribbon has been pressed onto it. Alternatively, glue one strip of braid along the middle of the ribbon.

3. Apply dots of glue along the ribbon to decorate it, adding sequins and gems for extra embellishment. Then, make small dots of glue above and below the ribbon decoration for a more glittery bauble.

4. Admire the finished product and enjoy hanging your customised bauble proudly on your Christmas tree.
