Vintage Glam Cone Christmas Tree Tutorial
21 Wednesday Nov 2012
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
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)
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
I placed my vintage glam tree atop a platter of beads, pearls, broaches and pendants.
So, what do you think about my $1.00 Vintage Glam Christmas Tree??
