Our task is to form a New Yearfir-trees made of cones. The ripe little cone has one minus - it is sensitive to the change of humidity in the air. In dry weather, she reveals her veil. Therefore, the compressed knobs need to be treated beforehand. It is necessary to dry them using an oven (near the door) or next to the battery (in winter). When you see that the cone is ready for deformations for the benefit of the craft - start your work! Sticky bumps should be baked in the oven at a temperature of 170 degrees. Thus, its structure hardens. How to form a kind of toy shishechki? Next, we form the toy itself. We need to take a needle for the work of felting and pieces of wool, which we must twist into small balls. They need to do more, but adding a little wool. The more wool - the more difficult it is to separate it. You have to be careful, because the needle for felting is a dangerous tool. Now, we form the balls and dunk them into the water with warm heating, then roll between the palms. We get fibers with an elastic composition, which will make the balls in a round shape. After these water manipulations, we soak the balls with a towel (terry), and then - expect full drying of our wool. After - the tree must be decorated. To do this, you need to spread the balls on the adhesive backing. The usual little knob in sizes for five-six centimeters demands 23-25 balls which it will be necessary to fix. As a stand we will take a thread coil. The reel can also be decorated, but for this it is necessary to take an adhesive of transparent type and to roll it with glitter from glass. Then, the Christmas tree from the cone is fixed on the base. After, you need to put our woolen balls on the product with the help of hand-made elements. Experiment to get what you like. It is advisable to take a large set of knobs so that there is more room for change and improvement. Also, the bump can be treated with paint to make it really a real Christmas tree. But, regardless of the painting, it is best to add varnish. It will allow us to preserve the old look of our cone and add the "gloss" effect, which is so necessary for obtaining a unique and interesting thing. Also, you can use the services of beads, various beads, glitters, brads for decoration. There are a lot of ways to decorate the knob. But, only you decide which one is right for you. In addition, it is highly recommended to make a set of knobs, combining a variety of schemes and solutions in order to decorate and perfect the option of a beautiful and excellent shishechki for the new year.
