Draw a series of curves on the paper. These are about 1? wide. Cut them into smaller sections anywhere between 2? to 5? long arc to get various sizes of little “tubes”.
Glue each piece into a little tube like shape. One end of it is smaller than the other. So when we glue more together, it will start to form a dome.
Start gluing a few pieces into smaller clusters, then into bigger clusters. The paper clips are helpful in holding clusters together as the glue dries.
Once we get enough to form a circle, add some more tubular pieces till it looks complete. I left about 7? diameter of opening at the top and bottom. Feel free to improvise. The organic look is very forgiving!
Accomplish this easily by wrapping some nice colored yarn around the cord. Use a clip to hold it when you go take a break. Put a little dab of glue, or tie a knot at the start and at the end. We are done!
