Velvet Cone Christmas trees

I’ve been up to my elbows in cone shaped Christmas trees and having a blast!!!!

Here’s a little sample of the velvet trees the craft clubbers have been making…..

 They are so easy, inexpensive…. and take very few supplies.

Supplies needed for 3 cones:

3 pieces of poster board

1 yard of fabric-cut in 4 inch wide strips (make the strips as long as possible)

glue gun and glue sticks

packing tape

For great info on how to cut your poster boards..please check out this tutorial.

Here are the 3 size cones we made…

After you make your forms, begin applying your fabric pieces. Hotglue them as you go along.

When you come to the end of your fabric like I show in the photo below….

Then just place another piece on top of the existing piece.

    I’ve been following you for about a year now (maybe more). I absolutely love some of your stuff and these cones are the best yet! So inexpensive, but so chic! They will absolutely look wonderful as a “mantle-scape”. I love things that LOOK EXPENSIVE! and these definately do…… I might become a crafter yet! Keep up the good work. And I just thought of something else, they will store very well too, inside one another!

    I have been looking for quite some time for some tree’s like this for my Mantle to decorate with this Christmas and just stumbled onto your website! I LOVE this idea and am planning on making these for my mantle this year (2012) for a Holiday party I am having! I can’t wait for my guests to see these! They really do look VERY nice and I hope mine turn out as beautiful as yours! Thank you for sharing!! I will definitely be looking on your website more for even more decorating ideas!
