I’ve been known to go alittle crazy with the decorating and DIYing when Christmas time comes around and thanks to Pinterest I have an unlimited supply of new Christmas projects to try. Whooo Hooo!! Over the next few weeks I plan to post some  fabulous Christmas Project tutorials starting with a series of Cone Christmas Tree Tutorials. The first Cone Christmas Tree Tutorial that I want to share is a Vintage Glam Christmas tree made from beads, crystal pendants,  broaches and earrings.

Before I get started with the tutorial I wanted to let you know that you can purchase the same Foam Cones that you would pay anywhere from $4.99-$8.99 at Michaels for $1.00 at the Dollar Tree.

Okay, lets get started!!

Here is what you will need:

  • Foam Cone
  • Strands of Beads (I purchased mine from the clearance section of Walmart)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Pearl/Crystal Earrings/Broaches/Pendants

 Step 1: I used a color scheme that consisted of White, Clear and Metallic Silver. I started by hot gluing the white and crystal beads. Start at the bottom of the cone and hot glue the beads in a spiral direction.

Step 2: Continue gluing all of the White and Clear beads before moving on to your other color, in my case Metallic Silver

 "Glue Beads in spiral direction"

 Step 3: Once you have glued the White and Clear beads begin layering in the Metallic Silver beads (I saved a few strands of white and clear beads so I could display them in front of the tree)

"Layer in the Silver Beads"

Step 4: When you get to the top make sure you have enough beads to wrap around the top so that it comes to a point (I hope that makes sense)

Step 5: Now you can decorate your tree with pendants and earrings

"Decorate with earrings"

I placed my vintage glam tree atop a platter of beads, pearls, broaches and pendants.
