Hedgerow Baubles

unnamed-8

Plastic fillable baubles offer such a range of festive possibilities; we’ve chosen to fill ours with free foraged finds and sprayed them an on-trend copper shade

You will need :

  • Plastikote Fast Dry Copper Enamel, £3.99
  • Two-part baubles, £8.68 for 3 http://www.specialistcrafts.co.uk
  • Leaves and natural bits and pieces; we used ivy, holly leaves and a fennel head

Instructions :

  1. Pick your natural natural materials from surrounding hedgerows or fields (never from private land). Make a spray booth from an old cardboard box.

 

  1. Take the box outside and spray your picked pieces with a coat of copper paint. Leave to dry, then turn any leaves or large seed heads over and do the other side.

 

  1. Fill the baubles with the copper-coloured decorations and tie ribbon through the hanging loop at the top of each bauble.
