I originally made this Spirograph decorations back in September! It wasn’t because I was being really organised with Christmas prep, but because I had a deadline for Little London magazine. I was super impressed with how these turned out that I just had to redo them with EC and YC.
Make sure you follow my Christmas board on the Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the Pin for later.
To make these Spirograph decorations you will need:
- A Spirograph set
- Glitter (optional)
Stick your Spirograph onto the paper and make your design. I find to Spirograph to be incredibly frustrating at times. It often goes wrong, but when you managed to get it to work its so satisfying. EC and YC just went for it. EC said the best way to do it was to go as quickly as possible.
We tried using felt tip pens, but it quickly smudged and made holes in the paper where you went over the same spot multiple times. Pencils worked well if they had a sharp enough point. But biro type pens worked the best.
Next cut out your completed designs and stick them onto some cardboard. Then cut out the cardboard.
I finished them off by putting a ring of glue around the outside and sprinkling it with glitter.
You can either tape the thread to the back of the Spirograph decoration or use a needle and thread it through.
