DIY Beaded Trees

I love getting crafty with my girlfriends!  Last weekend we took out all of our bling and got busy!

OK I’m a little embarrassed to say but I had trouble making a cone, seriously!  I had to look it up, I can’t even believe I”m telling you.  The fact that it was on the Internet means I’m not the only one, right?  Right, let’s just stick to that.

Cut a circle out of a piece of cardboard or stiff  paper. The height of your cone will be determined by the radius of your circle. The larger the radius, the taller the cone. This kids plate gave us a mini tree that my girlfriend made.

Fold the circle twice, unfold and cut out one of the triangle sections.

Fold  by overlapping the edges a little, and tape together.

Take some hot glue and start adhering all of your pieces.  I found everything at the bottom of my Christmas craft bins other then the iridescent balls which I purchased at Michael’s for $2.50 with my coupons.

I love the pops of deep red mixed with the pearls my girlfriend used on her tree.

Getting closer!

Here is the one I purchased at Michael’s awhile back, something about making your own for close to nothing that makes me like the DY version a little more.

Have a fabulous weekend friends!
