If you have followed my blog for any length of time you might have seen my homespun raggedy Christmas tree tutorial on my side bar.
Having a florist's cone or better yet a cardboard cone from a craft store, you can make any number of fun Christmas trees.
For today's tree, there is no sewing involved - only a minimal amount of glue required!
Can't beat that for time and we all know time is of the essence at Christmas!
So I took my cardboard cone and wrapped it in warm and natural batting which I just simply glued onto the cone, carefully pressing down on the joining edge to seal it well.
Trim the base and turn under and again glue into place.
The fun part is that you can decorate this blank 'tree' in so many different ways!
I love red against the snowy white so I traced some wool felt stars and snowflakes and even an elk to decorate my first cone tree. All you need to do is glue them firmly into place
For a change up, I tried some cut out letters for 'noel' - you could do JOY or you could simply cover the cone in snowflakes or small Christmas tree cutouts or stars - whatever!!
Just have fun and soon you'll have great, easy to make and cheap new trees for Christmas!
