Hello, my dear followers! I am not done with ornaments!) Maybe 3 more and done for a year, or…I have another idea. What about papie moche ornaments, but that type of ornaments will need more time and materials. For example, I found a nice ideas at the Internet, like circus, clowns, animals and others. Very colorful with many details, more difficult to make. What do you think? Shall we try? We will learn together, we will create a perfect set for a next year! Write “yes” in comments if you want a series of these ornaments!
So, now, we will ;earn easy candy ornament, which possible to make for 6-7 minutes.
2 stripes 2 cm on 30 cm (2 different colors)
2 pieces 4 cm on 7 cm
thread for hanging ornament
a few pieces of ribbon for the bows, you can use any other decoration.
First, lets fold on half long stripes and glue them, like on picture.
Next, we will glue these stripes together, attach one piece a little bit lower than the first one, in order was easier to roll them together. We make two colored snail.
Don`t forget to put a glue between stripes, all should be attached.
I put too much glue on silver one, so when I cut a piece, which we do not need, I had some leftover on a snail. I had to tear a piece of the snail and cut more. So, be careful and glue small areas in order you could make cleaner cut, should be straight.
Next, lets form a candy wrap from other 2 pieces of foam.
Fold on half one foam piece and find the center. Take a thread, puncture foam at the middle and attach thread that way, in order edges were inside, put a little glue to secure the thread, fold on half the foam again. Glue the halves together.
Glue the middle, but do not put much glue, should be glued the middle together, as for edges, they should be turned to the opposite direction and glued on the back.
Glue the edges and do similar work on the second piece of foam, just without thread.
So, do not forget to cut excess piece (like you see on my picture, silver stripe is sticking out).
Glue wrap on the spot where snail finished and second wrap piece from opposite side.
Decorate, how you like. I cut a few ribbons, made the bows and attached to the wrap, where they were attached to the snail.
Good luck, my dear followers! Have a great day!
