Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1 1/2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for the paint.
  • 2
    Paint Styrofoam cone Festive Green and allow to dry.
  • 3
    For first bottom layer of the Stryofoam cone, cut five strips of Metallic Lime deco mesh ribbon that are 10 inch each.
  • 4
    Cut five strips of Metallic Hot Pink deco mesh ribbon that are 8-1/2 inch each.
  • 5
    Bring the edges of one Metallic Lime strip together to create a loop. Pin to the cone 1/2 inch below the edge of ribbon with loop end level with the bottom of Styrofoam cone. Continue to pin the Metallic Lime strips around cone evenly spread, creating a triangle gap between.
  • 6
    Bring the edges of one Metallic Hot Pink strip together to create a loop. Sandwich the sides between the loops of the Metallic Lime deco mesh to fill the gap and place comfortably under other pins. Pin to Styrofoam cone 1/2 inch below edges of ribbon with the loop end level with the bottom of the Styrofoam cone.
  • 7
    Repeat previous two steps for the next two layers having the bottom edges of the loops covering the pins from the previous layers. Alternate colors for long and short strips for each layer. (Tip: because deco mesh is flexible and tends to move, trim strips to proper length to match other loops, if needed.)
  • 8
    For the top layer, change the measurements of the strips. Cut 8 inch long strips of Metallic Lime and 6-1/2 inch short strips of Metallic Hot Pink.
  • 9
    Cut one yard of Lime Christmas ribbon. Make a five-loop bow, bringing one tail through the center of loops and tie to the other tail to secure. Push pin through center of bow and vertically into top of cone. Trim ends.
  • 10
    Take apart the hook from the ornaments. Put hook in and out of one strand of the deco mesh and insert back into ball. Repeat, rotating colors and space between ornaments as you go around the project.
  • 11
    Cut the backs off buttons with wire cutters. Carefully glue buttons to deco mesh as shown.
