Easy Polka Dot Christmas Decorations

I have been getting a few personal messages on Facebook about where I purchased my polka dot Christmas decorations from!! I didn’t purchase them from anywhere!!! I made them from bits and pieces that I already had hanging around in my Craft Room looking at me wanting me to do something with them!!  So I thought that I would share with you how easy it is to make these cute Easy Polka Dot Christmas Decorations for your own tree or any decorating this Christmas.

I found some really cute red polka dot serviettes on Amazona along with some 3 ” foam balls. You can use any type of serviettes but I just LOVE polka dots and thought the red was nice and Christmassy!

Firstly I opened up one of the paper napkins and lay flat. I centred the foam ball in the centre of the serviette and then wrapped around the foam ball, bunching it up firmly at the top. Then using the jute, tie a tight bow around the bunched area to keep secure.

I then located the centre of the top of the foam ball and spread open a little hole so that I could see the top of the foam ball.

I then hand stamped, using my black ink pad the words “love”, “peace”, “hope” and “joy” onto plain white paper, not really to concerned if the lettering was straight or other bits of ink appeared as I was going for an old typewriter look. You could use any coloured paper that matches the serviettes that you use.

Whilst I let the stamping dry, I made the loops enabling me to hang them on the tree. I measured out 20cm of jute and then tied a knot at the bottom and pulled it tight to secure. Then using my glue gun I attached the loops to the top of each exposed part of the foam balls and held there until the loops had adhered to the top. Be careful not to burn your fingies!!

Finally, I cut out all the words that I had previously stamped. Then using double sided tape stuck them to the front of each of the decorations, ensuring that the loop was facing me. I didn’t want them to hang crooked when I popped them on our tree!

I hope you enjoy making these Decorations as much as I did and would love to see your version! They also are great to jazz up your gift wrapping and make them more personalised 🙂
Merry Raggedy Christmas!
