    DIY Christmas Trees

     

    It’s three weeks until Christmas….eeek! I can’t believe how fast this year has flown. I decided to start decorating my flat last week but I suddenly realised that I didn’t have enough decorations for the different rooms in my flat. I remembered that I had some polystyrene balls, which I bought years ago, that were just gathering dust on my shelf. In a sudden moment of inspiration, I realised that I could turn them into Christmas trees. I dug out my trusty glue gun and in minutes I created some really cute Christmas trees that I’ve proudly displayed around my flat. So, if you fancy a quick decorating project keep on scrolling to learn how to create these DIY Christmas trees. (N.B. I’ve included shopping links in gold text)

    You will need:



    1. Polystyrene Balls
    2. A Glue Gun
    3. Gold berries
    4. Gold ribbon

     



    Instructions:



    1. Start by creating a base for your Christmas tree. I stuck 4 large balls together using a glue gun, and then I continued to build upon them using smaller balls as my tree got taller. (Tip: the hot glue does melt the polystyrene balls slightly, so try not to use too much glue and give it time to harden as you build)

    2. Once you’re happy with the height of your Christmas tree fill in any gaps with smaller balls. Then push a gold berry onto the top of your tree to create a focal point (the gold berries I used had wire stems which made this step easy, but you can also glue the berries onto the top).

    3. Then use the gold ribbon to tie a small bow under the gold berry and you’re all done!

    I found making these DIY Christmas trees very satisfying and I think I’ll be making some every year. By the way, you can also use coloured balls if you don’t like white, so experiment and have fun decorating for Christmas.
