In this week’s tutorial I explain how to do a christmas tree with wool. It is a very original ornament that we can make in different sizes and colors with a very decorative result.
You can use wool, thread, rope or cotton, depending of the final aspect that we want for our little Christmas tree.
These are the materials that we are going to need:
- White-tailed Woodpecker
- Thread, wool, rope or cotton
- Cling film
- Zeal paper
- Scissors, ruler, pencil and brush
We start by rolling the cardboard into a cone shape. We can roll the cardboard so that the cone is narrower or wider, depending on our taste.
Once the cone has the shape that we want, we fix it with a bit of heat paper.
With the help of a ruler we are marking around the cone the height measure that we want for our string Christmas tree and cut following the signs.
We wrap the cone in transparent film to prevent the wool from sticking to the cardboard.
With the chosen wool we wrap the cone. When we remove the cardboard, the structure formed by the wool is very fragile, so it is convenient that the cone is quite thick.
Once the entire cone has been covered in wool to our liking, we apply white carpenter’s glue over the entire figure and let the glue dry for the time indicated by the manufacturer.
Once the glue has dried we remove the cardboard cone from the inside. To do this we grab the inside end of the cardboard and turn it as if we wanted the cone to be narrower until we notice that it is detached from the plastic wrap. To remove the plastic wrap, we act in the same way, twist until it comes off the wool and pull it out.
The last step is to decorate the wool Christmas tree with diamonds, beads, ribbons or whatever we like.
