Cone Christmas Trees

I’m a big fan of the holiday decorations that can be stored, damage-free, from year to year. This one is super simple to make, plus it can take a licking and keep on keeping on from year to year.

I made these with upcycled sweaters, but you can use green felt or even tissue paper.

Here’s what you need:


  • styrofoam cones
  • green fabric or old sweaters
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • colored brads

s-l50021. Cut the sleeve off and begin to wrap it around a Styrofoam cone.

2. Hot glue sweater to the cone, folding the ends in the back to create a seam.

s-l50033. Press colored metal fasteners (or brads) through the sweater and into the Styrofoam to create Christmas ornaments.
