This year for the Christmas decoration I have decided to make some small fir trees to place on the sideboard of the living room.
You already know that one of my objectives is that the jobs that I teach you come out « by four quarters » and in this case the chosen material could not be cheaper: a package of food pasta, specifically « daisies » that you can find in any supermarket.
Do you want to see how they are made?
As a fir tree base I have used a polystyrene cone, although you can also make a cardboard cone or use a plastic cone that you have left using thread or wool.
The cardboard is glued with a glue u niversal, the remainder of the base is trimmed and painted with the spray paint of the chosen color. In my case copper color.
Using the silicone gun calie The paste pieces are glued around the cone starting at the base.
Rows are added to cover co Completely the cone and spray painted.
Once the paint has dried, the trees can be decorated with small beads, although I liked them better without any decorations. If you make three of different sizes, the result is most decorative.
If you liked these little saplings and want to see more ideas, take a look at my Christmas tree desktop Pinterest board.
Every week I publish new ideas and you can receive all my articles in your email if you subscribe to the blog. You can also follow me on Facebook, Google+ or Twitter so you don’t miss a tutorial.
Until next time.
