That is what I keep telling myself, but I keep making more. I finally put all my supplies away…but I am now thinking how cute some Christmas ones will be. I need to find a Christmas tree, and oh how about an Easter tree…so fun!
Yesterday I showed you the cone the girls did at the Love Letter DSP and Chunky Frame class this weekend. It is the size that Kimberly Van Diepen shows you in this video. Kimberly has a bigger Halloween tree then I have so I had to make mine smaller. The ones I did started out with a 4"x4" inch piece of DSP and then you cut it in half on the diagonal so you have a triangle shape.
Here are the ones I did, they are so addictive. How cute would these be decorated with Christmas DSP on a Christmas tree like an advent calendar, you could date each one and the child could pick one each day. Then pack them away and use them every year, or if you have a Christmas party each person could take one home with them.
It's hard to see in the picture, it looks cooler in real life, but see all the strings? That is actually the string that comes out of the striped ribbon when you fray it. I just draped it on the tree so it looks like cobwebs. Nothing gets wasted. Ha!
