I love the Christmas cone tree trend… cone trees are and easy DIY holiday project that can be personalized to fit your home and your theme… oh, and they are CHEAP to make! They don’t look cheap though, which is what we’re all after, right? Here are the basics… you create a cone from poster board, light cardboard or even decorative paper. (You could cheat and buy Styrofoam cones, but they aren’t as cheap as they once were!) Glue the paper cone in place. Then use a glue gun or plain white glue to attach…just. about. anything. So simple, it didn’t even need a step by step! That having been said, we have included a bunch of tutorials below with the inspirational photos… You could make your cone trees as tall or tiny as you wish, make a whole forest, and make them fun and modern, or elegant and traditional…or somewhere in between… Oh, did I mention that these make a great family project? Win win! Our feature project, above, for quick and easy cone trees is from BHG.
To start us off, The Happy Housie has a great tutorial on creating the base of the trees from posterboard!
Shauna at Beautiful Matters has a bunch of great trees for us, and they were made from cardboard cereal boxes! Love her tutorial on how she did all these!!! She used everything from white beans to dictionary pages! And they look elegant, and even expensive… Great job Shauna!
Martha has a cool and ethereal white feather cone tree for us, complete with instructions!
City Farmhouse has a great idea for using those dollar store coffee filters and creating this great tree! Love the creative use of materials! Here’s how she did it.
Megan at Balancing Home has used glitter to create really cool cone trees… DO you want an over the top Christmas celebration this year? How many of these can you make and group together? They would make a fantastic mass display!
Lastly, Bargain Hoot has these velvet cone trees… great in a traditional room!
