Crafty Christmas Trees

Oh the joys of a hot glue gun, ribbon, and spray paint! I am loving all the many ways you can take any type of cone and make it into totally unique Christmas tree decor.

For this tree I took a brown floral department wood tree/cone and spray painted it gold and just hot glued leopard ribbon around it.

This Victorian style tree was made from a styrofoam cone that was spray painted silver, wrapped and hot glued with lace and pearl garland.

This one is my favorite! Again I spray painted a styrofoam cone silver, then pinned on ruffled fabric and tulle. I ruffled with my sewing machine, but you can total do it by hand too. The possibilities are endless and I can't wait to make more!


  1. My blog is not updating you-boo! I saw on facebook you had updated, wonder what's wrong. Anyway, adorable trees! I love the lace and pearl one! And the feather boa one's are adorable also! LOVE THEM!!!

  2. Now it is updating... what did you do to fix it?
