I removed the tinsel from each frame and used muslin strips to cover the frame. I wove the muslin into the frame twice each time I wrapped a piece around the diameter. The weaving, along with hand sewing, secured the muslin to the frame. My original idea of just covering the frame with muslin didn't work at all. Once the frame was covered and the cone was turned upright, the muslin wouldn't stay put.
The wrapping process continues. After all the frames were covered with muslin, I handstitched a fuzzy white fiber onto the muslin and also added a coffee stain here and there to give the pieces a slightly aged appearance.
An inside view
The handles were strips of muslin and fiber and were sewned onto the frame.
The image used is from a Luna Girl image CD. Muslin was attached to a piece of computer paper and the images were printed using my laser printer. A bit of coffee staining was added to the corners. After adding lace and buttons to the top of the cone, the image was attached and a bit of fiber was tied on for accent.
The bottoms of the cones were dipped in coffee and once dry, they were finished off with glitter on the tips.
These were fun to make and I'm happy with the way they turned out. I had my doubts along the way!
