Materials for Your Money Christmas Bauble

For this easy DIY money-themed Christmas gift, all you need is:

  • A large clear bauble
  • Dollar bills
  • Curling ribbon
  • Scissors
  • OPTIONAL: Small candies e.g. Werther’s Originals or Hershey’s Kisses
  • OPTIONAL: Punny Gift Tags (Here are printable ones we made)

NOTE: For the purpose of our crafting, we use fake bills to demonstrate, which is why you’ll see “COPY” written all over our bills. Of course, be sure to real use currency for yours if you plan to gift it!

How to Make a Money Christmas Bauble: Step by Step

Have all your materials gathered? Now let’s get to work…

Step One: Prepare Your Mini Money Scrolls

There are a lot of ways you could fill up a Money Christmas Bauble, but the simplest and quickest one we’d recommend is simply rolling them up into little scrolls.

These can slot perfectly into any bauble, and (once unrolled) they’re relatively crinkle-free, compared to other options like money origami.

To make your mini money scrolls, simply place your bill down on a flat surface, and begin to roll tightly…

It should look something like this when you’re done. The tighter the better!

Next grab a small piece of curling ribbon, and tie it around your cash scroll.

Finally, take a pair of scissors to curl the edges of your ribbon to give it a nice, festive look.

Repeat this process until you’ve turned all your bills into little scrolls.

Step Two: Fill Up Your Bauble

Now comes the easy part! Simply put your money scrolls into your bauble one by one.

… and keep filling until you’ve added all your cash scrolls.

Step Three: Add the Finishing Touches

To finish things off, we’d recommend adding a few small candies inside to fill up the bauble a bit more if you have additional space.

We’d also recommend adding a punny tag on the front to bring it all together. Here are printable ones we made.
