How to make Personalised Christmas Tree Baubles with Kilner Jar Seals

Making decorations with the children can be fun and can make a great gift for the grandparents or even teachers this festive season. This month’s craft ideas are simple to make and need very few items to bring them alive (plus they look good too!).Today I am sharing how to make a Christmas Tree using Kilner Jar lids or seals (yesterday I shared how to make a tree using the screw bands).

TOP TIP:

Black and white images look best (colour photos can be edited to black and white in Power Point)

Step 4: Cut out the images ensuring they are smaller than the lids.

TOP TIP:

It looks great if you position the image on one side rather than central. If making more than one, try and attach the photos in various positions.

Step 6: Place the bauble onto a piece of wood and create a small hole by hammering the punch.
