Create gorgeous dollar store cone trees in 5 minutes are less with these creative DIYs.
I have another 5 minute Christmas DIY for you today. Monday I shared Mini Moss Wreaths with Ribbon and today I’m showing you how to make Christmas Cone Trees in 5 minutes or less.
I’ve been storing a few styrofoam trees from the dollar store left over from my Felt Scalloped Trees a few years ago. After going through my craft stash (we all have one of those, right?) I turned them into textural mini Christmas trees.
Pom-pom Jingle Bell Tree
The first tree transformed into a pom-pom jingle bell tree. (Left over pom-pom trim from my daughter’s DIY Candy Stripe Coverlet.)
Here’s you need:
trim (pom-pom, ribbon, fringe)
Secure the start of your trim at the bottom of the tree with a straight pin. Wrap the trim up the tree pinning a few pins along the way to keep in place.
Pin jingle bells (or tiny ornaments) to embellish it.
Hot glue a star, pinecone, bow, or whatever tickles your fancy on top!
The second tree I used the same method with a thin piece of garland with pom-pom and lace trim. Green flowers crown the top.
Moss Cone Tree
moss (the same moss I used on my dollar tree moss wreaths!)
wine cork or cardboard tube for trunk
I love the texture on this one! Just hot glue in small sections and press moss on top. A little messy but quick and easy to do.
I mixed these in with my felted scalloped trees. The forest collection is growing! Don’t have foam trees? You can create a cone with white card stock. You can find this method with my gold twine trees DIY. Another creation straight from my craft supplies. 😉
Do you ever just go through your craft supplies to see what you can create? I would love to hear about it!
