Brightly coloured baubles – decorate your own Christmas baubles with edding gloss paint markers

edding gloss paint markers are ideal for some creative designing this Christmas. They are the perfect tool for personalising and decorating candlesticks, Christmas cards, poinsettia pots and much more besides. With their warm, shiny gold, silver and copper tones they give virtually all surfaces a metallic shiny finish and help create a festive atmosphere. That is why they are the first choice for decorating glass baubles creatively by hand.

To decorate your baubles you will need:
Here’s how to decorate the baubles creatively with the edding gloss paint markers:

To inspire you, we have included a few Christmas motif templates in these instructions - but of course you are free to come up with your own motifs for the baubles. How about a Christmassy quote or a star pattern, for example? 

Hold the glass baubles at the top and work carefully on a soft surface - such as a sponge or a piece of plastic - to prevent accidental glass breakage. Any ink should be allowed to dry before it comes into contact with the surface.

With the intensive metallic colours of the edding paint markers, you will quickly and easily achieve brilliant results that will look fantastic on your Christmas tree – try it for yourself this Christmas!

Activating the edding gloss paint marker correctly:
  1. Shake the pen firmly with the cap closed. 
  2. Pump the pen’s nib carefully up and down on a piece of scrap paper until ink runs into the nib.
  3. Try a few strokes with the marker on the scrap paper.
  4. Don’t forget to always put the cap on again firmly after use.


Remember: The decorated baubles can be used to decorate other things besides the Christmas tree. Placed into a transparent bowl, or secured to an ivy wreath; they are sure to create a Christmassy atmosphere wherever you choose to use them.
