When I was browsing my local packaging supply store earlier this month, I stumbled upon these wooden serving cones. I knew right away that they’d be the perfect mini Christmas trees, so I scooped a bunch up for holiday decorations. I think I’ll use these to decorate our dining table on Christmas morning.
I love the subtle wood grain that shows through the paint and decorations. Look at your local craft store or packaging supply store for similar wooden cones – they’re super affordable. If you aren’t having any luck, you can replicate this idea by making simple paper cones instead. Either way, let’s get crafting!
What You Need
- Wooden serving cones (like these)
- Pompoms, sequins, etc
Cut off the excess bit of wood on the cone so that they will sit flat on the table like a Christmas tree.
Paint the trees in shades of green. If you add water to the paint to dilute it, it will act more as a stain and the wood grain will remain visible. Let dry.
Time to trim the trees! Use white glue and sequins, mini pompoms, stickers, etc to jazz up the trees.
Happy Christmas crafting!
