Christmas Pudding Tree Decoration

Christmas Pudding Tin
I’ve made this Christmas pudding tree decoration using a tin from a set of twenty four wedding favours bought from HobbyCraft, it was an expensive impulse buy, but now I am determined to use a few of them this Christmas …..
Picture 570
I drew round the tin and made the pudding base with brown Bazzill paper, topped off with white glitter paper. I’ve glued a loop of thread between the two paper layers so that the tin can be hung on a Christmas tree branch

That’s all there is to it. The holly is made using a punch, and I’ve doodled a few currants using  white and black gel pens and finally, no project of mine would be complete without a few flat backed gem berries!  All I need to do now is find a few sweeties to pop inside.
