What you’ll do:
  1. Cut 16-24 strips of paper in the following dimensions; Small: 6 inches long by ½ inch wide. Medium: 9 inches long by 3/4 inch wide. Large: 12 inches long by 1 inch wide.
  2. Punch a small hole near both ends of the paper strips.
  3. Put one end of the pipe cleaner through the holes in the paper and loop to keep the paper from falling off, pattern side down (at the looped end of the wire).
  4. Pick up the bottom paper strip and thread the wire through the hole on the other end. Do this in order, bottom strip first.
  5. Make a tight loop in the pipe cleaner so the paper will stay in place and twist it to curl the ‘vine.’
  6. To use, place 1 drop of Harvest Moon on the top of each pipe cleaner.
