Sparkly Christmas Tree Decorations~Bostik Challenge


This is one topic that a lot of people are really dreading.... its only 7 weeks to Christmas.  It may feel that its too early to read about Christmas related topics but trust me now is the time to start the preparations. This month the Bostik Craft theme is Christmas, the box has lots of of lovely christmassy papers, ribbons, sparkly sequins and many Christmas themed cut outs.

As always my mini crafter Little M came over and we had an afternoon of fun. First we had our regular smoothie making session, as we were chatting about Christmas we agreed that the smoothie should be red. So I found some frozen berries in my freezer and we set to make a blueberry and apple smoothie. Little M loved the taste  and really enjoyed the smoothie with a piece of cake.


Little M is now a"Big Sister" she was chatting about her new baby brother who is 6 weeks old and how she has been  helping her mummy look after him. She said her mummy says that she is big girl now and she is a good little helper. 

Little M is also excited about Christmas so we decided to make some decorations from the items in the Bostik craft box. We made two different types of tree decorations. The first ones we made were all sparkly and looked really pretty, the second ones we made are in the shape of crackers and are filled with a treat to hang on the tree. I have share a tutorial about these in my next post which you can find here.


To make the sparkly Christmas tree decorations you will need:

Pre cut Cardboard or wooden Christmas tree and Stocking shapes.
Bostik Glue
Sparkly glitter in red, green, gold and silver
Coloured string 
Sparkly gems for decorations
Scissors


Little M really enjoyed making the decorations, to find out how to make your own please do watch the  video below, its only 2.5 minutes long:




These decorations were really easy to make but be warned, to avoid glitter everywhere cover the floor and table with a dust sheet otherwise you will have a sparkly mess every where. We made three decorations in each design and I am sure they are going to look great on Little M 's Christmas Tree.


Being part of the Bostik 2016 bloggers with Tots100 and Merrily Crafts, I was sent some craft items in a box to create this project.

  5. I would like to make a blueberry and apple smoothie too. It sounds really yummy. I do not like to use glitter when I make my DIY decorations because they will just be all over the place. Maybe I could find something else to replace glitter. It is so sweet that your Little M is taking good care of her new baby brother.
