Quick Christmas craft Table decoration


Want to make a quick and easy Christmas idea that you won't be embarrassed to have on the table... try this..

A quick and easy table decoration you can do with children....

You will need:
1 polystyrene cone form (available from craft or fabric stores)
3m length of fabric or ribbon cut on the bias
Ribbon to decorate
Buttons sequins embellishments
Craft glue
Spray fixative 

Step 1
 Begin by spraying the form with a fixative or adhesive, and then dabbing small amounts of craft glue on to the bias fabric. Slowly wind around the cone form overlapping as you get closer to the top.
Step 2
Add decorative ribbon as much or as little as you like.

Step 3
 I had to add some contrasting ribbon at the top, and finished it off with a bow.

Like here:
Step 4  
Final touch is to add some decorative embellishments, but buttons or sequins will do just fine.

There you have it. A table decoration you can make with your children in 1/2 hour.

Have fun and please post any photos of superseded versions you have made!! We all can benefit from shared inspiration. Something to ponder about.....
