With a Merry & Bright theme going on in the family room, I needed a colorful Christmas decoration to add to my existing decorative accents which is what inspired this tinsel ornament tree tutorial. This tutorial is a part of the fun Christmas Extravaganza Blog Hop! More fun holiday links below!
What I used:
- cardboard cone
- tinsel garland
- optional: ornaments (I used three different sizes)
- hot glue/gun
Starting at the top, add a dab of hot glue near the pointy end of the cardboard cone and attach one end of the tinsel garland.
Wrap the cardboard cone. Pull garland tight for a fuller look or just enough to cover the cone…it’s up to you! I pulled mine tighter and used the entire string of tinsel garland.
Secure the end of the tinsel garland to the cardboard cone with a touch of hot glue.
You could be finished at this step if you like the look! Or use hot glue to add in ornaments (I removed the metal hangers).
Remove the metal hanger from a favorite ornament, add a dab of hot glue and attach to the top of the tree.
All done…definitely “merry & bright” AND easy!
