I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Hopefully you all scored some awesome deals over the weekend too! I’m so glad it is finally “legal” to post Christmas projects. I know that we’ve posted some already this year, so hopefully you are gathering your supplies to make those projects. But I don’t want you to forget to buy the supplies for these DIY Christmas Trees! When it comes to easy Christmas decorations, you can not beat these Christmas trees.
I was at the craft store and purchased 3 craft foam cones in different sizes. I knew I wanted to make some trees with them, but didn’t know what I wanted to cover them with. I think I wandered the aisles of the craft store for at least an hour until I found 3 things I wanted to use to create my trees. I found some fun silver tinsel garland in the Christmas decorations aisles, some gold ruffle trim in the fabric section and some feather trim also in the Christmas sections.
Since I was working with foam, I decided to use these floral pins to attach all my trims to my foam cones.
I did the same thing for each tree. I started at the bottom and secured the end of the trim with a floral pin. Then I wrapped the trim to the top of the cone. I secured it with the floral pins a couple of times as I wrapped. When I got to the top, I made sure to take my trim to just above the top of the cone and secured it in the back and trimmed off the excess.
I wasn’t sure what I wanted for the top of the trees until I happened upon the drawer pull section of the store. I found a couple of pretty drawer pulls and a small silver ornament for the tops of my trees.
All I had to do was push the end of the drawer pulls and the small ornament into the top of the foam cone. You could always secure it with a little hot glue, but since the ends were really long on the drawer pulls, I found that I didn’t need to do that. And since I went a little above the top of the cone, it covers up the area where the two meet.
I wanted to stick with white, silver and gold so I could use them on my table display with my DIY Apothecary jars. That also just happen to be silver and gold! :)
See, I told you they were easy! I’m all about easy Christmas decorations, and these DIY Christmas trees are just that. Plus I love that you can make them match any decor.
