So how do you top off a Domestic Bliss tree?
With the holy grail of all craft supplies!
Of course I am talking about…the glue gun!
Ahh but not just any glue gun…no this is the glue gun of glory!
You will need:
1 Paper Mache Cone. This one is 7″ x 3″ but I cut it down to around 5″
Paper or fabric to wrap cone
Hot glue gun and glue for gluing with
Mini Glue Gun to sacrifice in the name of crafting greatness
Mini Glue Stick
Ribbon about 6″
I used Opaque Crystal and Baby Pink
Try the cone on your tree and mark where you would like to trim down if desired.
Since my office tree is only 4ft I needed to make the cone a little shorter.
On the back side of your fabric or paper roll and mark out your cone shape.
Trim down cone after tracing outline onto paper.
You will want your paper to be longer than the base of the cone so you can neatly tuck in the ends.
Glue fabric or paper onto cone with hot glue and cut slits into the overhanging end.
Fold slits down and glue to hold.
Set covered cone aside.
Using hot glue gun add sequins to mini glue gun in rows.
Don’t cover the back of the handle until after you glue the decorated mini glue gun onto the cone.
Wrap cord around your cone and hot glue into desired shape.
Wrap mini glue gun stick with ribbon and secure with a small dot of hot glue. Carefully slide decorated glue stick into decorated glue gun.
Join us tomorrow to ooh and ahh over our textile celebration of domestic awesomeness.
(translation: I’m going to show pictures of the tree all put together)
