New Year's Topiary "Herringbone"
On the eve of the new year, you want to please yourself and loved ones with all sorts of New Year's attributes. And the main symbol of the New Year is, of course, the Christmas tree! Such a Christmas tree topiary will decorate the desktop in an office or a room in the house, and a candy surprise will delight the sweet tooth. For the manufacture of Christmas trees from sisal will need the following materials: 1. Sisal is green and beige (on a tree with a height of 28 cm and a base diameter of 10 cm it takes two meters of sisal 50 cm wide), 2. A ball of twine, 3. Cardboard, 4. Scissors, 5. Clay PVA, 6. Cardboard, 7. Decorative ornaments (beads, garlands, balls, spangles, etc.), 8. Candy, 9. Stapler, 10. Corrugated paper, 11. Gloves.First we make a cone of cardboard, fix it with a stapler or glue. You do not need to make a wide base of the cone, since such a Christmas tree is almost doubled in width due to the balls. A cardboard cone is neatly wound with a string.It should start from the top of the cone, securing the tail of the twine with glue. Next, the glue can be applied along the generatrix of the cone and continue to wrap, a lot of glue is absolutely unnecessary. At the end of the tail twine can be fixed with a stapler in several places for reliability. Twine is needed not only to strengthen the cone, it also makes a beautiful base. If somewhere between the sisal balls there will be a translucent cone wrapped in twine - it will be beautiful.
