Make floral baubles to hang in your Christmas tree this year
Are you looking for new ways to dress your Christmas tree this year? Perhaps you’re a little tired of the traditional red and green? Us, too. This year, we are longing for a sweeter and more natural and feminine look for our Christmas decorations.
Glass baubles filled with fresh or dried flowers are a modern, stylish alternative to traditional tree decorations. You can also incorporate flowers on the outside of the baubles.
These cute alternatives work like magic on a tree, in a wreath or used as table decorations instead of a traditional centrepiece arrangement.
All you need is:
- Glass or plastic baubles for flower filled baubles
- Gold, pink, white or beige baubles for flowers to be attached on the outside of the baubles
- Festive string or fishing line
- Sprigs of flowers and foliage
- Thin wire
Step 1. Decide what size baubles
There are many types of baubles out there that would work well when filled with flowers. We chose small and medium-sized glass baubles with a removable top. If you want to use large flowers, go with large baubles that open in half.
Step 2. Pick your flowers
Flowers such as roses and euphorbia, for example, look beautiful for a day or two but as they dry, a layer of condensation (or mould) will appear on the inside of the bauble since they contain a lot of moisture.
Step 3. Trim
Trim the foliage and flowers stems to preferred size so that they will fit in the glass baubles.
Step 4. Push into the baubles
Gently push the flower or foliage into the bauble opening by folding the leaves around the stem to make it narrower. It’s best to go stem first, as this will help to avoid damaging the flowers and/or leaves.
Step 5. Secure top of bauble
Secure the top onto the bauble. Give it a shake. This helps settle the flower inside the bauble.
Step 6. Finish with a loop of string
Thread a loop of string through the top so that you can hang it on your tree, on a branch or anywhere you like!
