Filled Christmas baubles

Filled baubles

I had recently heard about fillable baubles and got thinking about the possibilities. When I found them at the store, though, I was disappointed. There was a huge rim around the middle and they were made of thick plastic rather than clear, fine glass. Hmm. Then I remembered that glass baubles actually have quite a large hole at the top if you remove the hanger.

Obviously you have to choose objects that are flexible enough to fit through the hole. I opted for some fluffy white feathers and an appropriate photo (can you see the ‘My first Christmas’ bib?)
