Hello everyone and welcome back to the Helmar Blog.
Today we are making something very quick and simple for our Christmas table.
Using a cheap foam cone (mine was from Lindcraft), Helmar Foam Glue (Acid Free) and some tassel or gathered lace
start applying the Helmar Foam Glue at the base of the cone where you would like your lace to stick, this glue is ideal for foam products because it doesn't eat away at the foam.
Continue applying the glue in a upward circular direction all the way to the tip attaching the lace as you go along.
Once you reach the tip with your lace, secure it with a pin and trim any excess.
This glue does not take long to dry so once it feels secure, remove the pin.
For a shabby style decoration on the top I have placed a generous silk ribbon bow using Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive
More Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive was applied to the top of the bow
for a sweet little birdie to perch :)
With the addition of a small snowflake, pearl earring and crown charm to complete the look you have a very quick and simple decoration to make for Christmas that even the kids can get involved in.
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish everybody a very safe and happy Christmas.
