I love to make Christmas decorations and this year I am going to make some of these easy but beautiful string baubles.

What you’ll need:

  • Coat hanger
  • Small water balloons
  • PVA glue
  • Coloured string or wool


  1. Blow up some water balloons.
  2. Mix some PVA glue and water in a container.
  3. Dip your string in the glue and wrap it around the balloon.  YT christmas YT christmas
  4. When you have finished wrapping, tie a knot, making sure you leave some string to hang the bauble up to with.
  5. Tie it to your coat hanger and leave to dry overnight.YT christmas
  6. Once dry and hard, pop the balloon inside and carefully remove.YT christmas
  7. Your decoration is complete and ready to hang on your tree or give as a gift. YT christmas dec

  • what a very cute idea! I love this, not only for me as i think it will be relaxing but im sure the kids would enjoy them too to make for grandparents


  • Their appearance reminds me a beautiful lampshade I saw a few months ago.


  • Very clever. Adding these to my Xmas craft sessions with the kids


  • they are gorgeous, can’t wait to make some!


  • They look so effective, just lovely.


  • These are great and really impressive. My decorating feats are over though. As my child and family generally has grown older, there’s been less interest and need for such things.


  • A bundle of these make also a nice gift to neighbors ad friends !


  • They look really cool, I’m wondering if it is harder than it looks though….


  • Love the idea of these, should be fun to make.


  • Very nice !


  • What a nice project. I used to make Christmas decorations when my daughter was younger. Now not anymore.


  • OMG, I so want to do this. I saw a lady make a lampshade like this once too.


  • How effective does that look and so easy. I might try this with me class!
