Though last year’;s DIY Starburst Tree Topper from Pipe Cleaners remains a favorite, this year’;s tree has a more rustic really feel to it in a brown and blue color scheme, so the glitzy topper did not rather fit. I began pondering in textured brown tones like burlap and rope, and remembered seeing a mirror border among other things created in a similar fashion with brown rolls and went on a hunt for my wrapping paper rolls although toilet paper and paper towel rolls are a bit easier to perform with because the paper is thinner. I grabbed my Martha Stewart Glitter Glue set for just a hint of color and all round I like the outcome. Even though it really is a rather simple DIY, the challenge is figuring out when to stop and when to keep going. Mine is a touch lop-sided but I’;ve grown to like it…
What You’;ll Need…
* Wrapping paper roll or numerous paper towel, toilet paper rolls
* Tape you could use a hot glue gun as an alternative
* Pipe cleaners
* OPTIONAL: Martha Stewart Glitter Glue, or basically glue and loose glitter. You can also decide on to paint spray or brush in a solid color of your choice.
* Flatten your roll slightly and cut about 1 inch sections.
* As numerous as you need to have… I employed an whole wrapping paper roll and would have utilized a lot more if I had one more a single.
* Start by placing about a 2.5” piece of tape nearest the leading of your cut-outs, line it up with yet another 1, and tape it with each other.
* You will develop a flower of sorts, very first. If your tree is tiny, you can cease right here, or even create a couple of of these to string up and hang from your curtain rods or ceiling.
* Continue taping outward but cutting your tape in half, if it’;s too wide.
* Hold going until you like the look and size… knowing when to stop was the most tough component!
* Glitter glue the edges or center or wherever you like or spray paint your complete piece.
* Bend 2 or 4 pipe cleaners and insert them via the center surrounding openings. Twist them in the back into a single with 2 sides then use this to attach to your tree top rated.
I strung a handful of lights up by means of the back of it to light it up and left my pipe cleaners fanned out for a bit of shimmer in the back.
