Bon jour beautiful blogrettes!
Thank you all who commented on my humble dryer sheets tree project. Today I wanted to share the step by step on how I made my Dryer Sheets Tree.
Starts with a cone. Michael's ran out of styro cones the day I went to get one and Walmart only had this! Plus styro cones are kinda expensive for me.
This cone is a bit messy so I only used it to shape a brown cardboard paper I got from the a wrapping paper core. It is in-expensive, plus I could make them in any size I want!
After rolling into shape of a cone, I trimmed bottom part of the cardboard.
I taped the inside and outside tip with a scotch-tape.
I have yards and yards of this tulle fabric from my wedding and a lot of dryer sheets I have been saving for months! I knew I could use them for something!
I cut them into strips. Maybe 2 inches thick, folded them to make it appear less translucent because the fabric and the dryer sheets were too thin. I stitched the top and made a lace! I didn't have sewing machine which could make everything faster and easier. Also I ran out of white thread. But it was okay, the threads will be concealed anyway as the dryer sheets and tulle ruffles overlaps.
Either you tie it around or use hot glue to glue it around the cone. I glued mine. Work it up to the top of the cone.
And for the fun part. Mini Christmas balls! I got silver beads from A Dollar Tree Store
And some of these from Michael's Clearance Section.
I cut them in singles and glued them under the strips of dryer sheets
I concealed the tip of the tree with a snowflake ornament
The awesome part of using a rolled cardboard was you could chose for it to have a stand....
...or without a stand.
Et voila! Place it anywhere you want! Like a laundry room perhaps?I spent only $3 on this because I had the other materials just lying around the house anyway. Next time you want to throw away something.. you might want to think twice. It might get handy. Looking at my project makes laundry more fun. Ill be looking forward for more laundries to come!
