DIY Gold Mini Christmas Trees

Man, Christmas is coming fast!!!! I still have not show you all my craft projects I've done! These Christmas trees were an easy little project to go up on the shelves in my family room.

I bought three different styrofoam cones from a craft store. You can also make them out of cardboard to save some money though!

For the largest tree I used this beaded garland that I always see in the clearance bins at craft stores but never know what it is for...still don't know what it's for but it looks good as a mini Christmas tree!!

My trees were not pointy at the very top so I hot glued a circle out of the beads like so:

And then hot glued it on the top and kept wrapping it around until I got to the bottom!

For the two smaller trees I used two different kinds of ribbon: one glitter ribbon and one thicker silk one

For the tree bottoms I bought candle holders from the dollar store and spray painted them a copper color that matches my wall color but also coordinates well with the gold! A bunch of hot glue was good enough to attach them.

Here's one of my completed shelves. The sticks I collected from woods near my house, spray painted white and stuck in an old vase. Bada bing, bada boom Christmas decor :) The little glitter bell is from the dollar store. The little Christmas trees are my favorite though :)

I'll show the rest of my shelves with one more Christmas wreath craft a little later this week!

I'll be linking up to these parties:

  1. Isn't it ridiculous how stupid expensive foam trees are? I just can't bring myself to plunk down the dough for them. Your trees are cute--love the color you painted the bases :)

  2. Yes! I'm with Bethany. I've looked and refused to buy them every year for a couple years. I will break down one of these days.

  3. So adorable!!! BTW, they have tree cones at the dollar store you can get and decorate as well. :) I got a couple that already had gold glitter on them! They aren't necessarily foam but they will certainly work as well.
    Have a beautiful day! :)

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! I'd love you to come link up at my Pin Me Linky Party.

  5. I really like that you added the candle holders as a pedestal. It really adds some glitz & elegance to them! Very creative and cheap project. Thanks for sharing!

  6. How pretty. I love that you put them on the candlestick holders. They look so pretty!
