Paper Plate Baubles is a paid collaboration in conjunction with Bostik. I have a real love of crafting and creating with children and simple crafts are often the best. These paper plate baubles are simple, mess-free and perfect for younger children, plus they look amazing. Can you imagine a giant tree with these on perhaps in a classroom?
These were such fun to make, easy to set up and perfect for some Christmas crafting with children.

How to make Paper Plate Baubles
Make sure you watch the how-to video here:
These are really self-explanatory to make and ideally, I would make one and leave it on the side so the kids to see it and then let them create their own without intervening.
I am a big fan of Bostik Blu Sticks. They are a lovely deep blue colour which fades to clear as soon as they are dry. They don’t dry out in the tube and are big perfect for little hands.
We used pre-cut tissue paper circles as I had them from a previous craft. But the kids could cut their own shapes or even glue on scrunched up tissue.
The Blu Stick is also perfect for glueing on the ribbon.
The glitter craft foam that we used was self adhesive, but the blu stick would also work on that.
It would be an understatement to say that I am really impressed with how these turned out. They were the perfect 20-minute quick craft with my best friends 7-year-old.
