Mermaids` Makings

Lightbulb Baubles

My daughter painted these cute baubles, I added some ribbon and glued some confetti on top. We packed them along with two egg carton bells in an oatmeal cereal box. This is a present for our grandparents.

I made four little boxes to keep each decoration in and asked lil mermaid just to scribble on them. -Sometimes it’s a pleasure for her just to scribble on something, rather than do some very fancy artwork.  But the boxes look very artistic still, don’t they!

Here are our last year`s baubles.

    me kaunistasime ka ühel aastal kuuse värvitud elektripirnidega. Lasin mehel koguda pisikesi lambikesi (autotulede omad jms.. tal töö tõttu oli võimalik seda teha ;). Värvisin hõbedaseks.. ja nii toredad said. Panin hõbedase peenikese nööri külge :) Ilus kingitus teil!!!

    see boxide kaunistamine: nii saab ka 2-aastase “joonistustest” huvitavaid kaarte teha. lõikasin pliksi sodimislehelt värvilisema koha välja, kleepisin eraldi kaarditoorikule ja voilā! :) hea idee imho :P
