Old-Fashioned Christmas Ornament - Tin Foil Christmas Decorations

Another effective trimming made of tinfoil is in the form of fringe ruching. Use three layers of the foil and cut them into fringe (Fig. 4), then take a strong, coarse string and twist the tinfoil fringe around and around it forming a rope of silvery fringe (Fig. 5).
