I really wanted some leopard baubles to embellish my DIY mini Christmas tree. After looking online I found they were all a bit pricey. So I decided to have a bash at making my own budget DIY Leopard print Christmas decorations.
They were so cheap and easy to create. Anyone can do it! Here’s how you can make your own leopard print ornaments.
You Will Need:
- *gold shiny and matt shatterproof baubles (or any colour of your choice)
- *black Sharpie pen
- *gold glitter (or any colour of your choice)
- *PVA glue
- small paint brush
DIY Matt Leopard Print Christmas Bauble
Take a matt bauble and hold it firmly. Draw a leopard spot outline with the Sharpie onto the bauble.
Colour in the outline. Leave a space and start on your next random spot until the bauble is covered. Don’t worry about being precise. Leopard spots are individual and random. So that’s the look you need to go for!
You can always practice on a piece of paper first.
Leave fairly equal spaces in between each spot. But again, you don’t need to be exact.
Hang on your tree to dry.
DIY Shiny Glitter Leopard Print Bauble
Colour the leopard spots as per the instructions for the matt baubles.
Paint some PVA glue into the centre of each spot and sprinkle with glitter. Give a little shake and hang on the tree. When dry dust the excess glitter with a dry brush.
The mix of the matt and shiny ornaments along with some plain glitter ones creates interest.
I displayed my DIY leopard print Christmas decorations on my DIY mini Christmas tree.
The baubles are part of my porch festive decor.
