Happy Monday, friends!
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend!
Christmas decorating in my house has begun and I want to share a fun Christmas craft with you guys today. My paint chip Christmas trees. I had so much fun whipping these up over the weekend, and I think you’ll enjoy them too.
These sweet little trees are so festive.
To make them you’ll need the following supplies:
Foam cone(s) any size (mine are 12 in and 9 in)
paint chip cards
glass head pins
ribbon for embellishment
Grab different shades of green paint chips.
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 winged it.
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 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!
