Three Tabletop Christmas Trees

Smoothfoam Christmas Cone

I have always loved Christmas crafts and having a bevy of handmade Christmas trees in all shapes and sizes around the house is high on my list every year. Using the Smoothfoam cones makes it easy to create a variety of looks in very little time.

Flower Tree

Supplies Needed:

6″ Smoothfoam cone
Scallop paper punches in two sizes
Ink
Sequins
Small flat head pins, pearl pins
Ribbon
Patterned paper

For this cone, I punched lots of scalloped circles from different patterned papers, inked and then shaped them. I used tiny flat head pins to attach the to the cone. I used pearl head pins to anchor decorative sequins in the center of each flower, then added simple ribbon bows.

Eyelet Tree

Supplies Needed:

6″ Smoothfoam cone
Cardstock
Border punch
Ink
Double-sided tape, hot glue gun
Small ornaments
Ribbon
Pearl head pins

For this tree, I used two colors of cardstock cut into strips, punching the edge of each strip. I applied each piece using double-side tape, slightly pleating the upper edge of each piece as I went along, to fit the tapered shape of the cone. I made a ribbon bow for the top, anchoring it with pearl head pins. The resin ornaments are from my collection and I used hot glue to attach them.

Lacey Tree

6″ Smoothfoam cone
Ruffled white lace
Small red velvet bows
Small Christmas ornaments
Hot glue gun
Ribbon
Pearl pins, flat head pins

This one was the easiest off all!  I pinned some lace at the bottom of the cone, and then started wrapping the lace up and around the cone. About every 5 times around the cone, I would add another flat pin just to secure it. When I got to the top I trimmed the lace and used hot glue to secure it. I made another bow and secured with pearl pins. The tiny ornaments are from my collection and I used hot glue to add them to the tree.
