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!
