Jingle Bell Bauble

I bought these clear baubles last year with the intention of decorating them but, just ran out of time to pick them up. Then I saw that Fran (Purple Peanut's Crafty Blog) had shared one she had decorated on her blog and I was inspired to dig mine out and get creative. Here is one of the finished baubles.

I tried different variations with the strips of paper inside the bauble; thick, thin, tight curls, loose curls - then I settled for longer strips and let the paper naturally curl itself as it was placed inside. I finished the bauble by tying this beautiful blue silky crush bow with silver jingle bells and a little silver ribbon.

We just have one tree in the living room but I'm tempted to find a little mini tree to place in our tiny hall to hang my decorated baubles on.
