This sweet basket measures 5 by 5 inches and is inspired by a beautiful vignette on my windowsill in the hallway. Together a chipped egg bird nest and a tarnished silver candle holder make the most fanciful combination.
I wanted the kit to contain frilly, shimmery, textures. The velvet brown ribbon really makes the German glitter glass star sparkle!
To create this basket. I start with my materials...
-2 Brown and 1white coffee filter
-Strip of Music Sheet
-2 inch German glitter glass star
- strip of velvet ribbon
1st- Crumple the coffee filters into a ball and squeeze. Making the filters rough and wrinkled.
2nd- With Hot glue gun , run a line of glue across the length of the music sheet and place pipe cleaner over the glue. Fold music sheet over, covering the pipe cleaner completely.
3rd- Hot Glue around base of nut cup and set in the middle of a brown coffee filter.
Wrap the coffee filter around the cup pressing the filter onto the glue. Repeat with White filter and then last brown filter.
4th- Hot Glue Velvet Ribbon around the base of the coffee filter covered cup, Hot Glue the German Glitter glass star over the seam of the velvet ribbon.
You are finished! Create displays and vignettes on sills and shelves, table centerpieces, table settings. Use to hold vintage buttons or follies in your studio or fill with vintage ephemera shreds and give as a gift.
