Guess what is on its way to the big screen? Coming to theaters nationwide on January 16, is Paddington the movie! Based on the beloved novels (see the video above!) by Michael Bond, and produced by David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), cast includes Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent and Peter Capaldi.

In the book series, Paddington is a lovable stuffed bear from Peru who becomes orphaned after a horrible earthquake. He makes his way to London, and is adopted by a family. From there his comical adventures begin! I’ve always been a big fan of all things London, and am excited for the movie to bring Paddington to life…well, in a live action version!

In order to get a jump start on the release, I’ve been asked to create a Paddington craft tutorial that you can do with your little ones. I suggest you check out the books, make this craft and sit tight for a few weeks until the movie debuts on the big screen!

To make these ornaments, you’ll need:

– Glass ornaments

– Glitter

– Paddington images printed out to the size of small postage stamps

– Scissors, découpage medium

– Craft paint, brushes

Cut out your images, and set them aside for now.

Use a thin liner brush and paints dots and/or stripes on one side of the ornaments. Let dry.

Apply a thin coat of découpage medium over the painted designs, then quickly pour on the glitter.

Let dry, and then give the ornaments a second coat of glue and glitter so you can’t see any of the glass through the glitter. Let dry.

Now use white craft glue and affix the pictures to the front side of the ornaments. If you don’t want the raw edges of the image to show, you can use craft paint to make tiny dots. This gives the edges a finished look. Let dry.

Now add the hangers so you can put them on the tree!

Didn’t they come out super cute? And they are super easy and way fun to make.

PADDINGTON arrives in theaters January 16!

From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.

Starring Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, and Nicole Kidman.
