Today it is already impossible to imagine the New Year without bright decorations on the Christmas tree. The stores offer a wide range of ready-made balls and garlands. But if you want to surprise your guests and decorate the Christmas tree in the same style - you can make toys yourself.
Ornaments on a Christmas tree made of linen or jute twine will perfectly fit into the interior in ethnic style or rustic style. As a basis for decoration, you can use wooden or foam balls, bought in the store for creativity. In addition, with the help of this technique you can arrange the old annoying balls.
If the spruce in your house is quite high, you can make voluminous decorations by wrapping a balloon around with twine. After drying the ball should be pierced with a needle and remove the remaining rubber. It will turn out a hollow ball of twine, which can be decorated for every taste.
The basic basis can be decorated with various decorations, using both accessories from the store, as well as remnants of old beads and bracelets
The combination of pearl beads imitating pearls with a satin ribbon will give the Christmas tree ease and romance. Bows from double-sided tape will look more voluminous.
Another idea for making toys is plain burlap. She can wrap glass balls or even blown bulbs. Patterns of harness look on these balls very organically.
A piece of lace on a gray background resembles frosty patterns on the windows. It is best to choose a large volume pattern. But you can use a piece of an old curtain or napkin.
For delicate and romantic toys it is better to choose ribbons of pastel shades. They are perfectly combined with mother of pearl.
Toys in this style are perfectly combined with natural fir or pine cones, which can be hung by attaching pieces of twine to them.
You can use different accessories, adhering to the same color range.
Or make very concise toys with elegant accessories.
To create toys you will need:
- foam balls or wooden balls
- glue gun or quick-drying glue
- beads, ribbons and lace for decoration
Choose the twine of the desired shade. We start by creating a loop for which the toy will hang. Then glue the selected ball with string. It is most convenient to fasten the twine on the base with hot glue.
To make the ball look neater, it is better to apply glue not on the entire length of the thread, but only in some places.
The result is such a base ball. Then you can proceed to its decoration. You can use a cord of different thickness to create different textures.
