A couple years ago when I first starting blogging, I made some small DIY Christmas trees with styrofoam cones. This year I thought I’d add a new one to my collection.
I bought a cone from Hobby Lobby for a few dollars and I pulled out this suede fringe that I got on clearance from Walmart awhile back. (I knew I’d find a good use for it someday!) I also already had a red knob and glue gun.
There were only 3 yards of fringe so I had to use it wisely.
I started wrapping from the bottom and every so often I put a dab of hot glue.
I wrapped the rest around the top and then I just pushed the drawer knob down into the styrofoam.
I think it’s perfect with my eyelet ribbon and jute-wrapped trees.
(If you go there, you can also see the other tree that I made which I don’t set out anymore… LOL)
I also like the simple, kind of rustic look they have.
What do you think of my trio of trees? I’d love to know!
