FloraCraft® Burlap Fruit Tree

- Time:1+ hours
1Cut 5 inch lengths of Burlap ribbon to create 5 inch x 5 inch squares. Fold two opposite corners of the square in to meet at the center. Now fold one of the remaining corners down over the center so that the tip of this corner is about 1 inch up from the tip of the other corner. Gather the folded edge of the Burlap ribbon and pin it about 2 inch up from the bottom of the cone. Continue folding and pinning squares all the way around the cone. Repeat pinning a second row about 2 inch above the first row and so on to completely cover the cone. At the top of the cone, gather the folded ends of the Burlap ribbon and wrap with wired sisal rope to create the point as shown.
2Spray paint the tree lightly with White spray paint, letting some of the Burlap ribbon show through. Apply Snow-Tex to all the tips of the branches and let dry. Spray the tree with adhesive and sprinkle with Diamond Dust glitter.
3Spray paint the fruit in assorted metallic colors and let dry. Insert toothpicks into the bottom then glue the fruit tucked into the Burlap ribbon evenly spaced.
