Bling Ribbon Christmas Tree ConeDecember 7, 2014
I’m on a DIY Christmas Tree Cone kick right now. I love them! They’re so cute… little cone shapes decorated with pretty papers, glittery ribbons, interesting embellishments, etc. I love the way they look all grouped together. I also mix and match colors and sizes. I love the way neutral Christmas trees look alongside Christmas trees with bright pops of color! I love the way the small little Christmas trees look amid groups of large Christmas trees! Once you start making one, you might be tempted to make another… and then another…and so on! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Let’s just say one day last week, the kitchen was covered in various DIY Christmas Tree Cone supplies. I had a station where I was creating the forms for the trees. I had another station where I was wrapping the tree form with pretty paper or felt or foam. And then I had another station where I added extra decorations and embellishments onto my tree. It was rather addictive, I tell ya! My husband came in the room at one point, and was pretty much speechless by how I had created the perfect DIY Christmas Tree Cone assembly line.
During this process, I was able to whip together this sweet set of Christmas Cone Trees in neutral colors. I love how the papers on the trees are all technically different, but they all complement each other really well, as they are in the same neutral color family! If you are at the craft store looking for complementary scrapbook paper, note that there are usually sets of scrapbook paper with coordinating colors!
Today I am sharing another variation on the DIY Christmas Tree Cone. This one features a whole lot of bling action! Who doesn’t love bling?! Isn’t it shiny and totally glam?
Don’t think I sat there and glued a million little rhinestones onto the Christmas tree. What you see is actually a ribbon of shiny rhinestones! They come in large, wide rolls and I got mine from BBCrafts! BBCrafts calls them Bling Diamond Ribbon. See how they are flexible like ribbon!
Glittery Ribbon Christmas Tree Cone
- rhinestone ribbon
- styrofoam tree form OR you can make your own cone using this template
- hot glue
Simply use hot glue to attach the rhinestone ribbon to the tree.
Where you have seams between two different parts of the ribbon, make an effort to align the rhinestones so that the seams become less visible.
Voila! Easy peasy and so glamorous, too!
