- glue torque or glue gun;
- beads of any size and color;
- decor elements (bows);
- any hairspray;
- coffee beans.
Stages of the work. At the first stage of the work we need only whatman, scissors and scotch tape. The stage is quite responsible. It is necessary to make an even workpiece for the future craft. We twist the cardboard into a cone of the desired size and securely fix the product with double-sided adhesive tape or glue. The tip of the cone is also fixed with an adhesive tape. Then you need to cut off an extra piece of paper. Thus it is necessary to try not to strongly crumble cardboard, otherwise creases can be formed, thereby they will spoil a kind of a cone, and the Christmas tree will turn out not so accurate. Check the stability, trim. We paint the cone with brown paint and wait for complete drying. It takes a little time, because this kind of paint dries quickly. Gouache has a property to crumble, so allsooner or later the glued elements will fall away from the finished craft. There is a simple way to prevent such a mistake: sprinkle the entire cone with an ordinary hair spray and give a little time to dry the herringbone. After complete drying, we begin the processdecorating crafts. We glue beads of large size, which will simulate Christmas balls. You can paste them randomly, in any order. You can use beads of different colors. Next, you need to glue the entire cone with coffeegrains. We start work from the bottom of the Christmas tree, gradually moving upwards. If the job is done using a glue gun, then you should not forget about precautionary measures so as not to get burned. It is worth noting that the hot glue grasps instantly, you must immediately glue all the elements, holding them for a few seconds. If you have problems while working, such as threads from an adhesive gun, then do not get upset, because they can easily be removed from the Christmas tree with the help of conventional tweezers.
