Begin by gluing the end of your Jute to the top of the cone. Lay it right across the circle and glue it in the middle. Then twist the jute around the center glue to form a tight loop. From here, continue looping and gluing
so cute plain, too! Or just make another set. :)
Then I got out sponge brushes and craft paint. I put very little paint on my brush, then dabbed it onto the jute to avoid a caked on appearance. Here are the brands and colors I used. I got all these paints from Hobby Lobby. Click the image to enlarge.
