It’s that wonderful time of year when tinsel, fairy lights and baubles are dotted throughout homes and malls across the country. Quality store bought decorations look great, and are convenient, but adding a handmade decoration here and there can really bring a festive look together.

A handmade mini tree made out of a plastic cone can be tailored to compliment your existing festive decorations. Once you have the base made, the sky’s limit, and you can add anything from cottonwool balls and baby pine cones to festive little soft toys and fairy lights to it.

Follow these easy steps and make your own Cone and String Mini-Tree.

You’ll need:
1 x Reflect-O-Site Safety Cone (450mm)
1 x Utility knife
1 x Glue gun and sticks
1 x Can Rust-Oleum Spray Paint Chalked Ultra Matte – white
1 x Ball of string
1 x Litehouse Iron Star Fairy Lights (3000mm) (optional)
Items for decorating – cottonwool balls, mini pine cones etc.

Cut around the base of the plastic cone to remove it using a utility knife with a fresh blade on it. For safety sake, cut away from yourself.

Spray the cone white with the Rust-Oleum spray paint to get a slick finish and to prevent any show through from the plastic. Let the paint dry fully before tackling the
next step.

Using the glue gun, glue the string to the cone. Start from the trop, and then work your way down to the bottom.

Decorate using your glue gun and chosen items. If you’re looking for a fun way for the family to spend some tine together, while adding to the festive spirit of your home this season, this is it.
