Step 3: Create the Lid
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 4: Paint It
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 5: Add the Leaves and You're Done!
When dry, cut out fabric leaves with pinking shears and hot glue them to the twig.
