Transform these plain mdf ornate bauble shapes with your choice of Christmas (or other) papers: hang on your tree or in a window, string them together to create bespoke bunting or maybe use the smaller ones as gift labels or present toppers.   Kit includes a set of twine/raffia to hang them with. 

 

Decoupage (the art of transforming an object with paper) is a fun creative activity that gives fantastic results.

 

There's lots of scope for creativity with these flat mdf shapes, which lend themselves well to applying the paper in different ways: use one flat piece so the whole pattern shows; apply torn pieces to create a mosaic effect; or cut out shapes from one pattern to set against another pattern as a background.  It's also easy to jazz them up with buttons, bows, gems or other embellishments that you may have, with their flat surface to stick things onto. 

 

Why not use your leftover glue and paper to upcycle some more objects - maybe make a jam jar light or sweet jar, or some Christmas pebble decorations?

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

You will receive full instructions with the kit on how to decoupage, as well as tips and creative ideas.  Simply put, decoupage involves tearing paper into small pieces and sticking them one by one onto your object until it is covered in a paper mosaic.  The special glue also acts as a varnish which protects the surface and gives your design a professionally painted look.
