What you will need:

Laura Ashley Wallpaper
– Double sided tape (glue)
– Embroidery thread
– Circle cutter(optional)

Step 1: Start by cutting out 10 circles of wallpaper. (the quickest way to do this is to use a circle paper punch)
Step 2: Fold all the circles in half, so the print faces each other
Step 3: Using double sided tape, adhere one half of a circle to another, at the back, continue till all your circles are joined.
Step 4: Wrap a length of embroidery thread all the way round the centre of the paper bauble and tie to secure at the bottom, go back round at tie to secure at the top, thread a bead onto the embroidery threads and leaving a loop tie the ends together, trim off any excess thread.
