Steps To Make Easy Christmas Decoration
Step 1- Colour the large cups
Let’s start with making the paper cups more decorative. Take 3 small and 3 big paper cups and draw a design on these cups with a pen. Make a wavy design and fill it with a colour. Take a bowl and add some red paint. With a brush, fill the wavy design with the brush. Colour all 3 large cups with these red painted design and let it get dry.
Step 2- Colour and decorate all the cups
Now it’s time to colour the small cups with green shade. Make a thick coat on the small cups and let it get dry. Now we have green coloured small cups and red patterned large cups. It’s now time to decorate he cups with decorative laces. Apply some glue on the bottom of the cup and stick golden lace to the bottom. Decorate all the cups with these laces. Also decorate the top of the cups with this golden lace. Cut the ends with scissors and stick it with glue gun.
Step 3- Use glittery stars for decor
Christmas decorations are incomplete without stars and thus, we will use amazing glittery stars to decorate the cups. Take glitter stars and stick it randomly in the small green cups. For the huge white cups, you can choose colourful stars which will get highlighted in the white background. Thus choose large sized colourful stars and stick it randomly on the cup with glue.
Step 4- Add some shine with glitter beads
It’s time to make the décor more glittery and shiny. Take a bowl and add some glue into it. Also get the huge golden beads and green coloured dry glitter. We will sue this glitter to decorate the beads. Thus, apply some glue on the large beads with the help of a brush. Dip these glued beads in the heap of beads. This will help the beads to grab some dry glitter. You can insert the bead into a toothpick for dipping it into the glitter. This way you will get a glorious shiny set of beads! Yu can use different coloured dry glitters to cover the beads.
Step 5- Decorate the hanging thread
Every element of Christmas décor must be glittery and shiny. For this, take the thread and cover it with silver glitter. Take a bowl, add some glue and add dip the thread in this mixture. You can also use silver colour and directly dip the thread into this colour. Let it dry and place it apart.
Step 6- Use the pastas for decor
There are so many pastas available in different shapes. Make use of these pastas to create some decorative and different shaped designs. Take different shaped pastas and colour them. For colouring, take a paper and pour colour in a bowl, with a brush, colour the pasta and sprinkle dry glitter on the coloured pasta. Let these pastas get dry. Similarly, take another set of pastas and colour it with different shade. Sprinkle dry glitter on these different shades pastas and let it dry.
Step 7- Prepare the hanging
Now it’s time to make a hanging out of decorative elements. Take the cups and make holes in the bottom of the cups. Pass the silver thread from the hole tie a knot to prevent the thread from leaving the cup. Let the tread pass till the top of the glass and tie a glittery small pom pom in the end of the thread.
Start filling the thread with glitter beads and colourful pastas we prepared previously. Similarly, pass the thread 2 large cups and fill the threads with glitter beads and pastas to make a cool hanging!
Step 8- Make a bell bunch
You can stick 2 pastas together, while making tying knots to keep the decorative element in their place. Now it’s time to decorate tie the three small glasses. Lets decorate them as small bunch of bells. For this, paste the bottoms of the three glasses which will develop a formation as a bunch of bells. Use glue gun and stick the bottoms of these glasses. We will use this bunch of bells for the third large cup hanging. Pass the thread of the large cup between these three bells and continue filling it with the decorative pastas.
Step 9- Combine the cups and prepare the hanging
Now we get 2 large cups with simple hangings while 1 large cup with the bell style 3 small cups. Attach all the three hangings together using a thread. You can tie it, prepare a knot or can stick the three threads. Here your amazing and colourful Christmas hanging is ready to use!
