    You can also make them with the egg shaped styrofoam balls. That one starts from the bottom (small end) and you work your way up to the top. Kinda looks like a pinecone. No lace all the way around just a roset sized piece on the top to hide the last row and a hanging ribbon pinned and hot glued to that.
    Hope that helps.
    Faith :lol:
    :XD:
    Thanks for the suggestions. I am a visual person though. Can you post a pic to describe your measuring method? Thanks so much.

    the first one takes awhile because you are getting use to what you are doing. It gets faster with each one. I guess it is a lot of work. But it is worth it in the end.
