Use sumptuous velvety colours and thoughtful words to create a string of opulent cheer: How to make jewel bauble wishes!
Send in the post, or hang in a window or over a radiator, so that warm air currents set the baubles shifting and rotating.
- An A4 sheet of thick-ish paper or thin card
- Paper for notes
- Scissors or a scalpel
- Button or bead or shell
Step by step:
Paint in gorgeous colours.
Write one word for each shape.
Write on reverse side, and add more ink or decoration if desired.
Make a loop at one end of the thread.
Prick four holes, two above and two below.
Stitch together, one at a time.
Until they are all joined together.
Add a weight – I’ve used a limpet shell.
Hang up straight away, or send to a loved one.
Please share what you make!
