Editor’s Wednesday Craft Special


Susan Penny shows you how to make a simple tree decoration
This pretty bauble is made by gluing torn pieces of vintage fabric onto a polystyrene ball – I was lucky enough to have some French ticking left over from another project, but any fabric scraps could be used. Add ribbon, net, a button and a bead to the top, holding everything in place with a pin, a dab of glue and a length of bakers twine. A quick and easy decoration for your tree.
