Step 1

Attach 3 of the long dowels together using the copper fittings. Reinforce them with some E6000. Repeat this step using the last 3 long, wooden dowels. Then insert the small wooden dowels into the copper fittings at the bottom of the structures that you previously made. Attach using glue and let dry.

Step 2

Measure the distance between the copper fittings at the top of the structure and cut a piece of cotton fabric that will fit in between the two ends. Crease the sizes of the fabric inward and iron to create a crisp hem. Glue the fabric down using fabric glue.

Step 3

Turn your structure so that the base is facing upward and create a loop around it with the fabric. Glue both ends of the fabric together and let dry.
