My inspiration for my Crafty Christmas trees came about from a few different sources. I loved these ideas that I saw (see below) and wanted to make my own versions.
I bought three different sizes of floral foam cones and made each tree a little different.
For the biggest tree, I pinned on circles of felt to look like ruffles. It took 16 sheets of felt and a lot of time to cut out all of those circles! But it was worth it ~ so pretty! I then added little jingle bells as ornaments, a pretty sequin ribbon for garland, and some glitter as snow. Then a bow on top to complete it.
For the smallest tree, I wrapped the cone in green yarn, glued on tiny pom poms for the ornaments, and added a mini bow to the top. I also painted a very small plant pot to put underneath the tree.
For the middle sized tree, I also painted a plant pot to put underneath it. I wrapped the tree in white yarn, but covered the whole thing in silver glitter. (I LOVE glitter!) I also added tiny pom poms to it as ornaments and added a little star to the top.
Now I have a cute display on little Christmas trees. I’d love to make more – like a pinecone tree, a fabric tree, a jingle bell tree — the sky is the limit!
Any other ideas?!?
