Christmas decorations DIY
Our first Canada Helloween has barely passed away, but neighborhood Canadiens have started to decorate their houses for the Christmas and New Year. A can understand the festive decorations in shopwindows – they are always ready to the next gift season. And I can understand the people who have hang the garlands and wreath decorations outdoor – it is quite cold even in November, and it is not clever to wait for real cold for outdoor works. But I was really surprised to see decorated Christmas trees inside the living rooms! Walking on the streets and watching the lights, balls, and sparkles inspired us to start the preparations early this year.
But today I want to show our Lilac balls decorations which were made especially for my friend Ailin Gasparyan and her New Year Photo Shoots a year ago. There were two rooms for photo shoots, decorated with white-lilac-purple and gold and brown colors. We had many golden decorations, but no lilac or purple. So, we have made very nice lilac balls out of fabric waste and simple supplies from DIY shop.
Styrofoam balls, acrylic colors, tulle, glass pearl beads and pins for the fist kind of balls, silky fabric for the second one, and wooden sticks, needle, threads and scissors. Organza or lace fabric can be used instead of tulle, crystals instead of pearl beads, and glue instead of pins 🙂
Now, let’s make silky balls.
One of the ways to use this light weighted balls is to hang them on the ceiling! But be careful with the small children, they always love to play with balls!
Other ideas: use the payettes instead of beads, or use fabric with flowers pattern 🙂
