Step 3:Have some craft glue in a bowl with a paint brush ready for making.
Step 4:Making Homemade Vintage BaublesLets get started.  Paint the paper piece generously with glue till its almost soggy, then mold onto the bauble.  You may need to paint the whole bauble with glue over the paper to keep all the edges down.  Continue this until the whole bauble is covered.  If you like you can them roll the bauble into some glitter for that extra Sparkle!Step 5:Leave to dry.

These decorations also make for great centerpiece decorations.  You can place them in a clear bowl or jar and they look fab!
Hope you enjoy making these crafty decorations. My children had a ball and they look at them on the tree everyday with smiles saying "mummy we made those!"
