Another day, another fun tree project!
This one is so incredibly easy and fast it's almost addictive. And the possibilities with this one are literally endless.
fabric of choice cut into 2" wide strips
First, take a small piece of fabric and pin it over the top of your cone.
Next, fold your fabric strip in half, lengthwise, and pin it at top of cone.
Begin wrapping fabric, while keeping it folded, around cone as you make your way down. Pin every once in a while to secure it. (Tip: Pin near bottom of fabric so the next layer covers pin)
As you get to the bottom, pin under fabric which hangs over edge.
Continue wrapping and pinning to your heart's content!
Have you stopped to consider the possibilities with these babies?
I made some lovely earthy burlap ones. Check them out over at Tattered & Inked today! It's part of her "A Creative Christmas" series.
I also got a bunch of silver, shimmery tissue lamé and I plan on making several of these for my mantle. Like I said, possibilities = endless.
What other fabrics or materials would look good using this technique? I'd love to hear.
