I had this beautiful green raffia, which I believe I had found at Michaels over the summer. I had made some paper cones and needed to cover them. This is how I covered one of them.
For starters, you need a cone. You can make the cone by following the directions in this tutorial (it's REALLY easy!):
Next, you will need:
- Hot glue
Here is the video tutorial for the raffia covered tree:
Take the hot glue and put a dab at the top. Put end of raffia in hot glue and start wrapping it around the cone, adding hot glue here and there to adhere it to the cone. At the end, tuck the end piece under the cone.
That's it! You can add a color to it with ribbon, or dots for ornaments. I added a resin start that I had leftover from another project. Directions for the resin star are easy, put resin (I use Easy Cast) into a silicone star ice cube tray and throw in some glitter. When hardened, remove from mold.
Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by! Merry Christmas!
