How to Make Your Sprout Christmas Decorations
Remember to remove any dirt from your sprouts and that these decorations can only be used for a short length of time before they will have to be discarded or replaced.
Peakles took a square of foil and placed a sprout in the centre. She then pressed the foil around the sprout until it was fully covered. We made sure that there was a gathering of foil at the top of our sprout decoration. Peakles chose a red and a white piece of ribbon to tie around the top of her sprouts before hanging them on our table centrepiece.
Sprouts in Organza Bags
Peakles chose some glittery sequins, some fluffy white ribbon and some mini organza bags. In one of the organza bags she placed some sequins and in the other she placed the fluffy white ribbon. Finally, Peakles added a sprout to each bag and then closed it up. We hung these up using the handles on the bags.
Peakles enjoyed this the most as it involved some PVA glue, glitter and sequins! First we placed lots of glitter and sequins in a plastic container. Peakles placed the sprout in the container and squeezed glue onto it. She then rolled the sprout in the sparkles and sequins until it was covered! After leaving the sprouts to dry, we then tied a bright red ribbon around them before hanging them on our festive holly centrepiece.
Peakles and I think our Sprout Decorations are unique, fun and very festive!
