We have been experimenting and creating Christmas decorations using all the wrapping paper and cards that we saved from last year.
You will need:
- any type of emulsion glue;
- something to glue the paper onto (we chose plastic baubles that had chocolate in them);
- and a brush to attach the glue and all the bits and bobs, wrapping paper and that you saved from the previous Christmas festivities.
You can cover the containers with up-cycled decorative wrapping paper and plain coloured paper. Apply the glue on the surface of the container and attach paper.
As you fold the two ends like you were wrapping a gift, make sure you've applied glue in all the nooks and crannies and hold down so that it dries.
You can cut out sections of the cards and glue onto the decorations. Finish by wrapping them in ribbons so you can hang them up.
Here is a detail of some snippets of Jean's cards glued onto the decorations. This is arts and crafts that will be messy, fun and silly! To display we cut a bamboo branch to hang up all the decorations. Upcycled, recycled and creative!
