AEDM - Day 20

Welcome to Day 20 of Art Every Day Month!
Day 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10111213, 141516, 1718, & 19.


Today's project is another cool idea I've seen rolling around blogs and on Pinterest. Wrapping a styrofoam or cardboard cone with yarn to create a Christmas tree. I used cardboard and a bit a glue as needed to tack the yarn in place. As with keeping with my color palette for this year, my little tree had to include fuchsia, turquoise, and silver. Of course!

Here's my tree after it was yarn wrapped but before it was jewel adorned: 


Here it is all sparkly with silver goodness:




Happy Sunday!
