The holidays are here which means crafters are in overdrive! Dreaming, creating, repurposing, and general overall decorating madness. Trying to avoid the creative urge to scheme, invent easy and beautiful holiday crafts is futile.
So here we go. Take these styrofoam cones for example – with a roll of twine, and some glue you will create awesome Christmas trees.
- Styrofoam cones
- Hot glue gun
- Bases for the trees (optional)
All supplies can generally be found at any craft store – I even found these birch bases at Michaels. If you can’t find twine, you will certainly score some at your local hardware store — that’s where I found mine.
Here’s how you do it:
- Starting at the base of the cone, hot glue the start of the twine then continue to wrap the twine till you reach the top.
- Hot glue the twine to the top of the cone.
For a little extra holiday pop, I added wool felt ball garland and tree toppers. However, these trees look amazing on their own. I also found the felt balls at Michaels and simply created the garland by threading the balls together with a sewing needle and red thread.
Happy crafting and happy holidays!
