Organza and beads look great together. I used them to create this Christmas tree. You can use an LED garland instead of beads or make the Christmas tree without adding beads.
Total Time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
- green organza: a piece of fabric or ribbon 8 cm wide cm and 3 m long
- steel wire 2 mm thickness, a piece of aluminum wire,
- green threads the same color as the organza
- candle and matches or a lighter
- black felt-tip pen
- piece of white paper
- You need organza ribbons 8 cm wide, 3 m long. If you have such organza ribbons, go to the next step. If you only have a piece of organza fabric, then you need to cut it into ribbons: draw lines 8 cm apart on a piece of white paper; place the organza on top and use a felt-tip pen to mark the lines for cutting (mark dots); cut the fabric into ribbons.
- Singe a bit of the edges of the ribbons with the flame of a candle: swipe the edges quickly near the flame. Be careful not to burn the organza.
- Fold the organza strip in half lengthwise, insert the beads inside. Sew the first bead to the beginning of the strip. Sew the edges of the organza, pulling together a little fabric to form a frill. When the first strip of organza is over, sew the following stripes. If necessary, singe the edge of the fabric again with a candle.
- Sew the organza frill to the wire.
- Bend the wire into a spiral shape to form a cone. Start at the bottom. Make sure the wire is covered by the next frill.
- Bend the wire and pass it through the center (see photo).
- Form a round support and fix the end. Check that the Christmas Tree is stable and level. You can make this Christmas tree without adding beads or use an LED garland instead of beads.
