|I pasted cotton batting balls to the top of my chenille stem figures and then|
added a variety of tiny trims to finish my Santa and snowman ornaments: a tiny
bottle brush wreath, red ribbon, a small cotton batting top hat and a few
red winter berries.
|Step-by-Step photos of twisting a chenille stem figure.|
- Cut one bumpy piece of chenille stem with two bumps and a second piece with only one. The two bumps will be the legs of your tiny armature and the single bump with be the arms.
- Position the single bump in the center of the double cut bump wire and then twist the double cut bump wire around the arms to shape the body. (shown above)
- Now your ready to paste on a tiny bead or picture for a head.
- Twist the tips of your arms where the hands of your figure would obviously be to hold tiny bottle brush trees, a miniature sack of toys, a tiny candy cane etc...
- These light weight ornaments are perfectly suited to hang for a feather tree or you can even decorate a package with them.
