I love Christmas cone trees… this trend is an 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! ***Updated 2017***
