Introduction: XMas Decoration in a Dome
Last Christmas I visited a very fancy decoration store and they had big and little glass vases full of Christmas baubles. I then knew I had to try it with my dome and starry lights! You can adapt this idea to the things you have at home and give a whole new look to your old baubles.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather All the Necessary Things
Big candle holder with dome
Starry string lights (with batteries)
Different size of gold Christmas baubles
Different size of red Christmas baubles
Step 2: Lights
Turn the dome upside down and hold it securely or ask someone to hold it for you.
Place the string lights inside the dome distributing them all around it. Keep the battery box outside the dome.
Step 3: Baubles
Put the baubles inside the dome mixing colors and sizes. I used 11 but it may vary according to your dome. Put the mistletoe inside making sure the baubles don't cover it.
Step 4: Cover and Turn
Place the battery box on top of all your baubles.
Put the candle holder upside down covering the dome holding both very tight. Turn it around to make the dome be on top of the candle holder and place it wherever you want.
Step 5: Sparkle
When you're not using the light turn it off very carefully by opening the dome a little bit to uncover just the battery box.
It looks beautiful, don't you think?
