Christmas Decoration- Glitter Styrofoam Cone Christmas Trees #HandmadeHoliday14


Disclosure- I was given product and compensated for this post.  All opinions are 100% my own.  

Christmas is coming soon, woohoo!  It by far my favorite holiday and I get giddy decorating for it.  Since we have a new house this year I have different spaces that I need to create and decorate for.  We actually have a mantel this year and I'm so excited about it.  It very large, so I had to get some things on there that are pretty tall.  I love the look of styrofoam cones tree into Christmas trees, so I shopped at Consumer Crafts and got some awesome cones for super cheap!

This is what you'll need:

This is how I made them.
I first painted the styrofoam cones with white acrylic paint just to give it a nice surface that won't just soak up the glue.

Using a spray adhesive and some awesome green glitter, I sprayed the cones and then sprinkled the glitter all over the cone.

I did it with 3 different colors!  I used extra fine glitter and some medium glitter.

I also made some trees with wrapped yarn.  Super easy and fun.

I just wrapped the yarn around and used a glue gun to keep the yarn on.

I would make Christmas cards.

I would use it to cut out SNOWFLAKES! I have a weakness for them and can't get enough when it comes to Christmas decorating!
