I know I’ve just been all things Hallmark movies here on the blog lately….but I have been busy doing other more creative activities too.
I really needed to up my Christmas home decor game after watching all those beautiful Hallmark scenes for the last month and a half!
Enter these fabric/trim trees.
Now I’m sure you could find cones in the craft stores…..but I am nothing if not cheap…..so when I saw you could make them from poster board for some pocket change…..I began my forest!
I didn’t use a template at all…..just started rolling poster board into a cone…..taped it all up with good, quality packaging tape….and got to decorating. I got 2 large cones, 2 medium cones, and 2 small cones of varying sizes from one standard poster board.
With only my trusty glue gun as my weapon, I dug through my lace, trim ,and fabric and started construction from the bottom up.
The Lace versions are prefect for a softer look:
These are my kids’ favorites! The green was what I had left of this trim…..but I also love it so much, I might have to buy some more like that. And a straight-up peppermint candy quilting cotton is just glued down in strips.
I then proceeded to fancy it up a bit with the plaid. For this look, I cut 2 inch strips of fabric and ran a long stitch down the center and gathered for a ruffle. (I Know, I said no-sew….you could still totally hand gather the fabric as you glue….but I am all for quick and easy)
Those ones are my favorite!
