Bubble Wrap Christmas Decorations

Bubble Wrap Christmas Decorations

Oh my. The deliveries. The endless deliveries that keep finding their way to my house. Well they don't find their way - they've been ordered. You see this year I have accepted that Christmas shopping with two 16 month old busy toddlers is a no go! My answer is Amazon. I can get done the shopping I need to without leaving my house and dealing with two little humans who refuse to co-operate with me. Instead - I can keep them at home and watch as they terrorise my Christmas Tree and try to balance plastic food out the play kitchen onto our beloved family pet. 

It's the season for cardboard galore! My recycle bin is full the moment it's emptied. So I thought I would use some of it in our crafting! Lets face it the possibilities are endless! On a smaller scale from our Cardboard Palace, we grabbed the cookie cutters and began creating our templates.

Laminating Sheets

PVA Glue
Bubble Wrap
Cookie Cutters/ Templates

Apply the PVA glue onto the cardboard cut outs. Spread with a glue spreader. (OR if you're anything like me and can never find the glue spreaders when you need them most - I have a childrens plastic knife that I use especially for crafts, that does the job just as good).

Once you have applied the bubble wrap and it has dried you can start to apply your paint. We used good old childrens paint. Neve used it as an opportunity to mix colours and create new ones which was great to observe!

Grab your A4 paper and start to make your prints. If you have card to use they will be sturdy enough once dry to start adding your crafty bits if not - wait until they have dried completely and laminate the shapes ready to decorate.

Spread lots of glue over your bubble wrap printed shapes and start to stick on your crafts. I did think it was super cute how Neve made them all into little faces. Googly eyes, buttons, stickers, sequins and what ever you do - don't forget the glitter!

Lets take a look at the craft in action:
