Saucydwellings: String tree how-to

Saucydwellings: String tree how-to
In the past I've had people request instructions on how to recreate the string tree I made in my living room. While I don't have a full tutorial, I do have enough to get you going so you can hopefully recreate this fun project at home. Here's the tree in my living room that started all the trouble: I apologize in advance for the quality of the photos, when I took them my camera's screen had died- so I could take pictures but I couldn't really aim or anything or be sure the photo had come out. Start by putting pushpins into the wall in the general shape of the tree you're hoping to create. I generally have a photo of a tree printed out to give me a basic guide as to the shape I'm going for. Any good drawing teacher will tell you that the rules of trees are thus: Don't be too symmetrical or regular with the branches, trees are not ladders.Generally odd numbers of things look better than evenDon't try to make it too perfect. Other pointers I would give you would be: Don't be too linear.

PARK & CUBE & Starmoss: Doo.Ri Tights What you’ll need: Patterend lace tights (or leggings), very thin needle, thread, scissors, and a set of beads varying from sizes to colours to shapes. I chose two neutral colours (white and cream/gold), one complimentary (blue), one pot of sequin for the sparkle and a satin pearl pot for texture. Wearing the tights will be the easiest way to apply the beads. Find a patch on the lace where the texture is heavier (on the pattern – the weave is stronger there and should hold the beads better), and slide needle through where you want to start.
