DIY Christmas tree decorations

Paint your own Christmas baubles

Christmas baubles in the shops are available in every size and colour imaginable, but the most beautiful and unique of all are ones you’ve made yourself. edding gloss paint markers are incredibly easy to paint with and produce really effective results. The ink dries quickly, lending the baubles a wonderfully glossy finish - especially if you use classic metallic colours such as gold, silver and copper, or even white. Those who prefer a more adventurous design can go for light-blue metallic, violet metallic or any of the opaque gloss paint marker colours (there are 22 in total). Designs dry quickly on smooth surfaces, too, without smudging.
