What inexpensive decorations can you make to quickly transform aluminium foil and sticky tape? Hope this video gets you going with a few of my favourite ideas. Might be useful for designing costume jewelry or props for performances.

Christo and his wife Jeanne Claude wrapped coastlines, I enjoy wrapping found objects to craft decorations.

Watch the 50 sec  video clip  for a quick rundown.


Step 1: Found Objects

You will need:
  • Double-sided sticky tape
  • Aluminium foil
  • Sharp knife / blade
  • Interesting objects to cover (other materials I used included cardboard, tissue paper and plastic)


Search around your environment  for interesting items to wrap with foil.  

Several tiny eucalyptus leaves lying on
the grass made perfect items for a
sparkling decoration (please see next step 3).

Really cool...all kinds of possibilities here!! Thanks <br>
