DIY: SEQUIN CHRISTMAS BAUBLE

Every year I try and think of a different Christmas trinket to gift friends and family I’ll be seeing over the holiday season – without breaking the bank.  Earlier this year I stumbled across these clear two-part baubles while searching online and at less than £1 each.  Filled with something pretty, with our Christmas bauble tutorial you’ll have a great festive treat on hand for any age in a matter of seconds!

Last week I hosted a bit of an (un)official Wedding industry Christ as office party, so I filled baubles with gold sequin confetti as a pretty favour for each guests to take home.  For a grown-up treat you could fill with homemade (or shop bought!) chocolates or sweets and use as place settings on your Christmas dinner table, and for the kids why not package up a little DIY bauble-making kit with coloured pompoms of confetti so they can make their own baubles ready for hanging on the tree?  If you’re obsessed with gift wrapping as I am, you could even add them to your Christmas parcels for a fun festive touch.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
