Make a Tinsel Tree

Another easy project idea for Christmas!  Here's your shopping list.

Shopping List
  • Styrofoam cones 3 7/8"x8 7/8" or 3 7/8"x11 7/8"
  • Twist Garland in your favorite color!  Pick up the 25ft roll from Darice (you will need one for the smaller cone and two for the larger cone).
  • One Candlestick
  • Beacon's 3-In-1 Craft Glue
  • E-6000 (to hold your cone to the candlestick at the very end)
  • A boa or marabou for trim up top and below the tree 
1.  Start off by wrapping the bottom of the cone all the way around with marabou or boa trim.  Use Beacon's 3-In-1 to adhere. 

2.  Next, take our your twist garland and simply spiral and wrap around the cone.  Glue as you go with the 3-In-1 Glue.  Continue to wrap until the cone is completely wrapped.  Make sure it's not lacking in the tinsel trim since that's what makes the tree stand out.

3.  Cut a little fluff (either marabou or boa).  Glue on the top of the cone.

4.  Adhere cone on the candlestick.  Glue using E-6000 (it's the best and keeps everything in place).  Let it dry. 

Enjoy your new tinsel trees!
