These simple Christmas baubles are sure to brighten up your house or tree this Christmas! The best part is that you can make them any size you like and use an assortment of colours. We love to supplement coloured paper for kids drawings or photos to personalise the baubles for Christmas.
Cut out 16 small discs of equal size. We did eight in Christmas Green and eight in Christmas Red but you can use whatever colours you like! You might even like to try getting the kids to decorate some paper and use that or try wrapping paper or family photos!
Carefully fold each disc in half so that a crease forms.
Glue the back of one side of a green disc to a red disc. Repeat for all the discs.
Using craft glue, carefully attach one of these double discs to another.
Repeat this process, until all the discs are joined to make a flared sphere with a slim hole through it's centre.
Tie a craft bead to one end of a piece of string.
Thread the string through the centre of the sphere. The craft bead should rest at the bottom of the bauble.

Thread a couple of decorative craft beads through the top string, then tie them off at the top of the bauble. The bauble should now be held tight by beads on either side of the string. Voila! Your handmade Christmas bauble is done!
