Oh, this tinsel tree. I made so many mistakes that it took forever and I had to redo it 3 times. It’s not difficult by any means, but I didn’t have a tutorial to follow, so I was winging it. And we all know how that goes. My uncraftiness really had a chance to shine through!
Now that it’s done, I think it’s simple enough for anyone. It will take a little bit of patience though.
What you’ll need:
Gold pipe cleaner (1 pack of 100)
Heavy duty scissors
- Cover the tree in gold glitter. I just put a light coat of glitter glue all over it and let that dry. This is just so you don’t have white styrofoam glaring through.
- Start sticking the pipe cleaners in!
- You have to keep them pretty close together and you’ll use a lot of them.
- Trim the pipe cleaners to the desired length. Preferably in the shape of a tree.
- The end.
How did I make so many mistakes?? Blarg.
Don’t even ask about he burlap tree in the background.
