DIY String Cone

10:16:00 AM

This deal got away...

I subscribe to Decor Steals because I think the things they 
offer for sale are adorable!

This one was great but it got away...
so I looked around my junk pile and made my own!

A metal finial from an old outdoor lamp and a 
wooden pedestal....

I drilled a hole in the base and screwed the finial into the base.

I gave the whole thing a coat of ASCP in 
Graphite then a coat of dark wax.

Then started wrapping the jute....

The burlap bag was a Decor Steal too!

And there you go.... Free!
I missed the deal but made my own.
