Make a Xmas Tree Decoration

Paper and Lolly Stick Ballerinas

Follow the links below to videos showing how to make a ballerina decoration for your Xmas tree.  You can be really creative and make them as colourful and sparkly as you like; perhaps use colourful paper, cupcake cases or fabric for their skirts and trim them with sequins, stickers or beads.  Don’t forget to include a ribbon/string for hanging them onto the tree.

I didn’t have a lolly stick, so I cut a strip from a toilet roll tube - it works just as well!
