Coffee Filter Christmas Tree

~Hi Friends~

I know I know, it isn’t even Thanksgiving and I’m talking about Christmas.  Sorry, I’m just excited about Christmas, what can I say!  I ran across the Styrofoam cones the other day and threw them in my cart.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them and just like that, an idea came to mind.

Supplies:

Coffee filters

glue of your choice

scissors

Styrofoam cone

 I’m thinking I could have skipped the whole store bought cone and made one out of cardboard for free which would bring my cost to $1.00 for the filters!

 I scrunched the filters together

Cut about half way up  (if you had a big cone or smaller coffee filters you wouldn’t have to cut)

Place some glue on the bottom of the filter and place it on the cone. I just kept repeating this and going around the cone, working my way up to the top.  If you have holes, fill them, you really can’t make a mistake with this project.

Little helpers with dirty fingernails are a plus!

I then took some scissors and gave the tree a haircut going a little shorter on the top. I finished it off with a sprinkle of glitter.


So easy and pretty, start to finish took about and hour.

Can’t wait to see your creations!
