Pretty Christmas Cones

Hi Bloggerettes!  Wanna know how to make this pretty Christmas Cone? 

Well it's easy to make and cheap to make!
Get some of these from the Dollar Store...

The glittered ornaments came from Walmart at $1.00 each.
Cut some styrofoam and insert it into the cone.


Gather up some greenery from your stash and any other materials you want to use for embellishment...
Love the little hummingbird.

Then start filling up the cone and creating the look you want.


Fire up your glue gun and get to work!

Love this little fairy.

I told you it was easy.  I'm not much of a crafter and if I can make these, then so can you.

I used white tulle and green and red ribbon from Walmart.
The white snowflakes come in a package and are $2.00.
I glued on a ribbon loop at the back for hanging.

Pretty cute, don't you think?
If you make one, please show it to me.


~~hugs~~

Love 'em, Sissie! I made a Winter cone a couple of years ago using wallpaper and a doilie. It turned out pretty cute but not as substantial as yours would be. Good job! I love the white one! Have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Sissie...these are precious. I will have to see if my dollar tree has those cones!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I haven't been to my dollar store in awhile, but I'm guessing all the Christmas decor is out now! : ) I did something like this last year, but not with this piece from the dollar store. I really like it! Did you get the other stuff {besides the ribbon from Walmart} at the dollar store, too? I like a "one stop shopping" theory!

You make it look so easy.... if only I had your eye for creativity!!

Sissi!!!!! That is so cute! I don't know, I could give it a whirl but yours looks so pretty. I'm not sure I can do as nice a job but I will have to try. I've seen those little trees at Dollar Tree. Thanks for the inspiration!

Sissie, the cones you created are beautiful. I would have never guessed that you got the cones at the dollar store. I've been trying to stay away from that store but I think I need to go make a visit.
Jane

Donna said...

Your cones are just gorgeous, Sissie! They look like they came from a high end boutique! I really love the tulle, and the hummingbird is just precious! Hey, I just realized that the cones are covered in little tiny "mirrors" that you and I are so obsessed with!:)

Dear Miss Sissy Girl~

Girly...you get your bumm bumm over to TARJAY asap. You might not find tons of fab stuff on every visit but I promise you there will be things you love and can't live without. Some big-wig company actually owns Target...can't remember which one but whoever it is helped to transform it! I LOVE IT!

LOVE YOUR CONE! YOU AMAZE ME! I'm coveting your gifts. Shame on me!

Hi Sissie!
What an absolutely DARLING idea! I may just have to try it! I LOVE my dollar store and I just recently bought some glittered snowflakes they had and added my clay roses! Isn't fun to know that inexpensive can look so rich!

Have a great day!
