Steps to follow:

Before starting to make Christmas paper baubles with newspaper, let's see what materials we need:

  • Balls of porexpan
  • Newspapers
  • White glue and a brush
  • Glitter
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Plastic Bottle Cap

First, in small bowl, dilute white glue with a little water and stir until well blended. Take the porexpan ball and with the help of a brush, apply the mixture of white glue across the surface with a soft touch without overdoing it. Thus, it is easier to paste on the newspaper.


Now, line the balls with newspaper. First, add some pretty silver glitter and some white so that the Christmas balls are brighter to the white glue and water. Cut several pieces of newspaper and crumple them up a bit with your hands. Then, with the mixture of white glue and glitter, paste the newspaper strips to the porexpan ball to cover it completely, as shown in the picture.


We now have a wonderful Christmas ball, well covered with newspaper! Now take the cap of a plastic bottle for the top of the ball. Line the plastic cap with newspaper and apply white glue over the entire surface. Slowly pour some silver glitter on to the cap until it is well covered. Finally, make a small hole in the center of the cap with scissors.


To hang these original balls on the Christmas tree, cut a piece of gold cord and pass it through the hole completely. Tie a knot at the lower end of the cord and another a little higher to make a stop. Then you just have to stick a little tail cap on top of the ball.


It's that simple! Now our Christmas paper baubles made with newspaper are ready. It is an original and creative craft that will serve to develop a beautiful ornament to decorate the Christmas tree. If you want to add some color, you can customize the balls by adding name tags. Use bright, bold colors and you'll be amazed.
