DIY Green Sand Christmas Tree Cone

Have you tried making these super cute & oh-so-easy Christmas Tree Cones? All you need is basically a cone form template like this one and some pretty scrapbook paper. And then you can whip together a whole little forest of these adorable Christmas Trees. Easy & fun mantel decor for this holiday season!

For the version I will share with you all today, I did something a bit different. Instead of making scrapbook paper Christmas Trees, Christmas Trees with pearl brads, or Rhinsetone Ribbon Christmas Trees, this time I used… (wait for it)… SAND!

Green sand is the way I customized this Christmas tree. And I’m in love with the interesting texture it imparts onto the tree. It looks fabulous next to my super smooth Christmas Trees made out of scrapbook paper. Let’s get to the simple tutorial now, shall we?

Directions:

Print out the Christmas Tree Cone Template and then simply fold your scrapbook paper (or card stock) into your cone shape. Use the glue stick to secure the seam shut.
