Fans on TikTok are going crazy over Stacey Solomon's giant baubles DIY, dubbing her a 'literal genius' for sharing her clever hack that's perfect for kickstarting Christmas festivities.

As the festive season is fast approaching, it's never a bad time to start thinking about  Christmas decorating ideas.

Stacey Solomon has been ahead of the festive game, creating her own Christmas crafts from scratch, and sharing the clever DIYs on her social media. The large baubles Christmas trend is the gift that keeps on giving, and in Stacey's most recent TikTok video, she shared how to turn her children's old bouncy balls into styling giant baubles, keeping the seasonal trend alive this winter.

Stacey begins the DIY by spray painting the old bouncy balls, one brown and the other cream. Then, while the paint is still drying, she uses her hands to dab gold glitter onto the balls. If you're looking to get stuck into the DIY yourself, you can nab your choice of spray paint from only £7 at B&Q.

In the next step, she takes a gold paper cup and uses a pair of scissors to cut off the rim of the cup. She continues by cutting vertical slits all around the bottom, bending every other slit and cutting each one accordingly to echo the look of the top of a traditional bauble. You can buy a pack of gold paper cups from as low as £2 from Amazon.

Stacey then reattaches the rim she originally cut off, glueing the two pieces together and finally, attaching the gold cup craft to the spray-painted balls to complete this DIY job. She closes off the TikTok excitedly exclaiming, 'Voila, giant baubles! They're the best thing I've ever seen! I love them!'
