Today is my last post here at My Favorite Finds, as a contributor, but I hope Carrie invites me back to visit from time to time. And as it’s my last post of the year, I thought I’d have a break from showing you a piece of jewelry and instead, show you a simple beach inspired cone tree.
I whipped up this easy tree last Christmas and in my rush , left out a few important photos, so read the text this time, not look at the few tutorial pics..
Right, so you will need; A polystyrene cone, glue and twine. Quite simply, wrap the twine around the cone, securing with glue, here and there, as you go. Hot glue would work much better, but I was in a hurry at this point.
Then I painted these cute plastic beachy charms white and when dry, I threaded onto clear nylon thread and wound over the twine, securing with a dot of glue at the ends.
A small wooden craft star was painted white and once dry, I outlined with glue and sprinkled Epsom Salts on to it to give it a sparkle. Glue to the top of the tree.
And there you have a Beachy Christmas Tree…. I love it!
This is how I displayed it last year, a shelf full of beachy goodness!
And here it is this year! Cute right?
I wish you all a wonderful and happy Christmas.
Please be safe and take care.
