Select a cone to suit the tree size you want. Wrap the cone with pieces of waxed paper and transparent tape. Trim the paper for an even edge at the bottom and tape it to the base of the cone to hold it in place.
Pour the Polycrylic into a tray or bowl, and soak about 3 feet of string in the finish without cutting it from the spool. While wearing disposable latex gloves, pinch the string, and pull it through your fingers to remove the excess finish.
Wrap the string around the covered cone at random angles with even overlaps. Soak and wrap more string as needed until you have the look you want.
After the finish dries, carefully lift the string tree free of the cone. You can carefully tear off pieces of the loose paper not covered with string or leave it in place. Keep an even ring of paper at the bottom so the tree stands straight.
