Make these cute Christmas tree cones with foam cones and things you have around the house.

 

Did you see these fun cone Christmas trees I made for my contributor post at Made From Pinterest last month? I’ve been enjoying them in the craft room, but I think they need to move to the living room since I finally am decorating in there. If you didn’t see it there, you can check them out below!

Last year I remember seeing lots of cone trees around Christmas time, and I loved them. They looked so simple and elegant. I never got around to making them though (I was going through some morning sickness and nothing got done last year). But when I was given some FloraCraft cones a few months ago, I knew what I wanted to do with them. Hi, I’m Lisa Mabey from Mabey She Made It, a DIY, craft, and sewing blog.

I started by referencing this pin which is a round-up of ideas. The variety and lovely details are what drew me to this pin. And so I started by creating a ruffled one.

Instead of using ribbon like they did in the tutorial, I tore some cotton and ruffled it. I like the torn look for this project because it gives the branches a little more detail without adding any work. And isn’t tearing fabric strips cathartic? I love that feeling. 🙂

Then just hot glue the ruffles around and around! I used three wooden beads on the bottom as a base to give this one a little more height.

 

The second tree was pretty easy to make, but took a little more time. I took a wrapped foam cone, and started winding  the rope twine around the base, using pins to keep it in place. Then  I covered it in Mod Podge and let it dry over night. Once it was dry, I was able to slip the cone out of the rope tree because of the plastic, and use the cone for the third tree.Make these cute Christmas tree cones with foam cones and things you have around the house.

The third one I did was the easiest. I started with pre-ruffled ribbon and glued it the same way.Make these cute Christmas tree cones with foam cones and things you have around the house.

Fun and easy! And I’m really looking forward to having them out for the Christmas season. I hope you’ll come follow me over at Mabey She Made It for more DIY, craft, and sewing tutorials like these:
