AD – Share the Festive Happy with Haribo

Share the Festive Happy with Haribo

Today I’m sharing the festive cheer with our personalised baubles filled with the finest sweets. Christmas may be different this year but we’re keeping the spirit alive with  a fun post sponsored by Haribo.

To protect our loved ones we’ll be staying home this Christmas. I don’t remember the last time we spent Christmas on our own as a family of four. Although we are looking forward to it we will be missing our friends and family who we normally see. Although we may not be able to get together we can still share the spirit of giving with the people we can’t be with. Haribo kindly gifted us some treats from their amazing Christmas range to Share the Haribo Festive Happy with a sweet gesture. We are so excited to share it with our loved ones and created some personalised Christmas treat baubles filled with a sweet surprise.

How to make personalised Christmas treat baubles

I wanted to make personalised Christmas treat baubles for my sister and niece as we won’t be able to spend the holidays with them this year. My Cricut is great for making personalised handmade gifts and the baubles I bought are plastic (so totally child-friendly) and open up so you can fill them. You can easily make your own personalised Christmas treat baubles by writing names with a brush pen if you don’t have a Cricut.

First I opened up Cricut Design Space and started a new project. I chose my favourite font and wrote the names I wanted to make. I decided to make baubles for my sister and niece, as well as some extra ones for my children. I measured my baubles, re-sized the names, and cut them out from a Christmassy red vinyl.

I cut each name and weeded it.

Then added Transfer Tape to each vinyl cut out.

The next step was to carefully remove the paper backing from the name, placing it centrally on the star shape. I smoothed the name down with my finger before removing the clear Transfer Tape.

Then came the really fun part – filling the baubles!

Haribo kindly gifted us a selection of their Christmas range which included many of our family favourites. The range included bags of Puck Penguin, Giant Trees and Starmixmas, as well as the Haribo Selection Box, Haribo Hamper and Haribo Tangfastics Tube. We love how the packaging has had a festive makeover!

I had a little help with filling the baubles. My children just adore Haribo and couldn’t wait to pick out their favourite sweets to fill the baubles. You can see my son loved the Haribo Sweet Medley which contained a tray with Starmix, Super Mix, Giant Strawbs, Jelly Babies, Tangfastics and Gold Bears. This was such an easy way to pick his favourites (and eat a few too!).

It didn’t take long to fill our personalised Christmas treat baubles. The baubles are the perfect size for a sweet treat. We added a gift tag and I think they make lovely gifts and keepsakes for this very strange year.

I can’t wait to pop them in the post for my sister to hang on her tree or pop in her Christmas stocking. Let me know if you try making them!

    I love these! It’s such a cute idea! Although I’d probably have to keep filling them with my pesky kids!

    That is such a cute idea. I think my kids would eat more than they’d put in each bauble lol.

    This is such a cute idea. As we moved this year and we had loads of house stuff going on there are things I wish I could have done, but fillable baubles is something I definitely want to do next year x

    My kids would love to find these on the tree. They would make a great gift from the elves too
