On The Sixth Craft of Christmas

On the 12 days leading up to Christmas Eve I’ll be sharing with you some of my favourite Christmas-based crafty activities from all over the internet. (Most of them will be – or have been – tried by yours truly!)

The 12

love today’s Christmas craft (thanks Pinterest). Sparkly and simple, anyone could do it.

On The —- Craft of Christmas I will share with you:

DIY Glittery String Ornaments!

I found the below instructions / image on Pinterest, but for the all I’ve tried to find a source, nothing. If anyone can figure out where it originated I’d really like to give them credit for this amazing idea!


Balloons, PVA glue and glitter, guys. That’s it! It’s beautiful in both simplicity and actuality. Of course, I’m not just sharing and recommending these crafts, I’m trying them out too!

Here’s my attempt at these glittery wonders! I’m quite pleased with one of them, though I don’t think I used enough string. I also found it easier to soak the string in the glue before applying to balloon, because the first – naff – one I did struggled to coat in glue whilst on balloon. The second worked much better and it’s happily hung on my tree!

[On the left!] How do you think it fits in with out tree? Not bad I think!
Although they’re not necessarily purely Christmas ornaments I think they’d fit in perfectly on your tree too!

Are you as big of a glitter fan as me? What sparkly things have you made?

    1. I missed this comment from you, sorry! I did just pop them with tape and a pin yes! I then used the pin to ease the balloon away from the string. It worries me at first because the string crumpled in on itself at first and then slowly puffed out and regained its shape, so strange, just like magic! If hog make some I’d love to see! 🙂
