I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend and are stuffed with turkey and pumpkin pie. I know I am!
Christmas decorating in my house has begun and I want to share a fun Christmas craft with you guys today. I whipped these easy little trees up over the weekend. They are super inexpensive and they come together so quickly. I’m so excited to share them here today.
Paint Chip Christmas Trees
These sweet little trees are so festive.
Things you’ll need to make Paint Chip Christmas Trees:
Foam cone(s) any size (mine are 12 in and 9 in)
paint chip cards
glass head pins
ribbon for embellishment
First you’ll need to grab different shades of green paint chips from your local hardware store.
Cut them into 1 in. 1 1/2 in squares. The squares do not have to be perfect. I used a cutting board and sort of eyedballed it. I like the look of the different sized squares.
Then, starting at the bottom of your cone pin your squares around the circumference, alternating colors. Continue to pin your squares working your way up the cone until the entire cone is covered. Towards the top of the cone I trimmed my squares down a little bit so they weren’t overlapping too much. Then, you can embellish it with a nice gold ribbon like I did, or even a little star on top would be cute.
I just love these little paint chip Christmas trees and so far this is the only Christmas tree we have up in our house. Is your tree up yet? Have a great week!
