I say "Fringe Trees" my six year old says "Fuzzy Mountains." Either way, these were so fun to make because of these amazing scissors from Pat Catan's.
I now want to fringe all the paper.
Check for the babysitter. Fringed!
Homework log for school. Fringed!
Toilet paper. Fringed!
Obviously I recommend the fringe scissors, but if you don't have them, a regular pair of scissors will work too. Additionally you'll need paper mache cones, tissue paper and/or scrap book paper, and double-sided tape.
- Start by cutting strips of paper approx 2.5" wide. The length will vary depending on the size of your cone and what part of the cone you are wrapping.
- Cut fringe about 2" along the edge. The uncut portion along the top is what you'll adhere to the cone.
- Start from the bottom and wrap strips around the cone by adhering them with double-sided tape. Trim off any excess from the strip of paper on the back.Continue layering strips on top of each other, moving up slightly for each strip.
- Once you've wrapped the entire cone, add something fun on top to finish it off.
I used copper glitter paper from Pat Catan's to make a triangle tree topper. It's the same paper I used for this triangle garland.
I have a hunch that there will be a lot of fringed paper involved in my gift wrapping this year.
Speaking of, there will be free DIY gift wrapping at the Holiday Kick-Off Market this weekend (Nov 21 & 22). Look for the Pat Catan's Pop-Up Wrap Stand, pull up a tree stump stool, and create your very own, one-of-a-kind gift bag.
