Instead of buying some mini Christmas trees to decorate the house, make this recycled Christmas tree cone which is very inexpensive and takes no time to make. These can easily be thrown away after the festivities, which not only facilitate packing away Christmas decorations and ornaments, but also save storage space. You can make them of different sizes depending on the furniture space. These will certainly bring a Christmassy feeling to any room.
Time: 15 minutes
Age: Any Age
Large cardstock/poster paper
Christmas wrapping paper
Star gift bow
Rope ribbon to decorate (optional)
Use the cardstock paper to make a cone by twisting and turning until there is a peak. Tape.
Cut the ends to make a uniform base for the tree to stand properly. Trim to make smaller cones.
Cover with the wrapping paper, trimming the excess or taping it inside the cone.
Place the gift bow at the peak and your Christmas tree cone is ready.
