Mod Podge Christmas decorations

This is a really simple idea for making decorations for your tree.

This is so simple its scary. Just layer your bright flowers on top of one another, starting with the biggest first. Use glue dots to secure your embellishments in place.

Once you have stuck down your second flower, take a white foam embellishment and stick on top of the second flower.

Now take one of your smaller flower embellishments in the same colour as the first one you used and stick this to the white foam embellishment, only this time use the tacky glue.

Now turn the layered flower over to reveal its non glittery side.

Selected your ribbon and cut down to size (this depends how you want them to hang, I prefer them short rather than long). Now loop the ribbon securing both ends to the centre of the flower with some glue dots.

Select a flower embellishment that is the same size as your first, only ensure its a different colour. Add a glue dot to its non glittery side and lining it with your first large flower. Stick it in place therefore hiding where you have stuck down your ribbon.

Now do the same as what you did for the other side. Don’t forget that following your second flower the third should be a white foam flower and the last should be the smallest embellishment that is the same colour as that of the first.

Now all that’s left to do is cover the decoration in Mod Podge.

Once you have covered one entire side hang and let dry. Once dry (around 30 minutes) turn over and cover the other side in the same way.

Leave for a few hours to ensure the finished decorations have fully dried before hanging from the Christmas tree.

You can have loads of fun mixing up your colours. I know that myself and daughter enjoyed making these together.
