Oh Baubles!

6 Nov

Our new craft group had our first ever making evening last night.

We made Baubles.

Ollie Cromwell was not a fan, but he was a kill joy.

Winging it as ever,  we sat sipping mulled wine and staring at the polystyrene balls that Mrs M had kindly bought over.

The Balls were clearly making Lu anxious and she eventually had a mini breakdown exclaiming that she didn’t know what she was going to do with them.

Luckily Mrs M stepped in, and in true Blue Peter style with some examples of baubles she had made earlier.

She showed us a fab glueless way to cover the baubles which was quick and you also didn’t need to be overly accurate. Which suits all of us very well.

Essentially it involved carving ditches in your ball so that it was divided into segments. Some people went for 4 segments while others went wild and carved 8.

Once the ball was carved up,  we covered each segment with fabric cut slightly bigger than to size and firmly shoved the edges into the ditches, repeating all the way around until the whole thing was covered.

Once this had been achieved people could really go to town on the embellishments.

Everyone went home with a really lovely little creation. Even those who claim not to be crafty had something to really cherish.
