Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    Cut about 15 1/2″ wide strips of cardboard
    Rub them along a table edge to give them a curve
    Hot glue the end of a strip to a small twig
    Wrap the cardboard around the twig to the end, tape on another piece and continue until you have the lid size that you need.
    *Usually about 1/4″ larger than the mouth of the glass piece you’re pairing it with
    Hot glue the end of the last piece on the coil

  • Step 2

    Gently press the center of the coil upward to create a dome
    Paint white glue on the inside of the dome/lid to keep it in place
    When dry, paint the lid in Burnt Sienna and then dry brush it in a Rich Espresso Dazzling Metallic

  • Step 3

    When dry, cut out fabric leaves with pinking shears and hot glue them to the twig.
