Tinfoil Christmas Decorations #2
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).
