Oh my I have been busy! The old blog has been on autopilot.
I thought that I would check in and offer a little tutorial. I want to show you how I made the sunburst tree topper that I made for my sisters Christmas tree.
2 packages of 100ct. bamboo skewers
3" mirror disk
brown spray paint
white school glue
fine brown glitter (I used Martha Stewart brand)
hot glue lots of hot glue
brown grosgrain ribbon
Here is what I did:
I made two tiers for points. For the shorter tier I started with a 4 inch skewer and then cut two at 3 1/2 inch for either side of the 4 inch one. I kept trimming skewers in 1/2 increments down to two and a half inches. I glued down the 4 inch skewers then I glued down 2 1/2 inch skewers and then filled in between. I found that this helps to keep the skewers spaced well.
Finally I glued two strips of grosgrain ribbon to the back so that I could tie it to the top of the tree.
So glad that you came by to take a look! Feel free to leave me a comment, it makes me feel all glittery!
