This is what I started with.
Wrapped some of my multi-purpose fabric (seems I am using this for a lot of things around the house). And then wrapped some lace around to help hold it in place. I did add some hot glue though to the join to make sure.
Then I added a star. Maybe I should have stopped here, but it still looked kind of bare to me.
I began to add some buttons.
Then I added some Jute to the top. Tied it into a bow, separated the 3 ply ends, and braided them. Added a couple more buttons to the bow and finished.
