Make A Foil Tree Decoration


Our finished foil Christmas tree decoration

It’s the final day of our 12 Crafts of Christmas fun and today’s bauble make will add some home-made charm to your Christmas tree. It’s easy and inexpensive to make and can be personalised using sequins, confetti, glitter or buttons.

You will need:

Coloured paper cut into strips (we used our Foil Embossed Star Paper)
Length of festive ribbon to hang your finished decoration (we have used our Sequin String)


  • Cut your chosen paper into strips of approx 20cm in length x 4cm in width.

  • Gather your strips at one end and staple them together.
  • Now shape the strips into a bauble shape (as shown below), by curving the outer two strips on either side of the centre strip (which should remain taut).
  • Once you are happy with how your decoration looks, secure the bauble using your stapler.

  • Now cut off the remaining paper to tidy up your decoration.
  • Finally, cut a length of festive ribbon and shape it into a loop before fixing it to the top of your bauble.
  • Now all that remains is to hang your creation to your tree!
