Old-Fashioned Christmas Ornament - Tin Foil Christmas Decorations
Here we provide illustrated directions to make an old-fashioned tin foil Victorian Christmas ornament. An effective trimming made of tinfoil is in the form of fringe ruching. It is easy to make.
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).
