There are a million takes on this in blog land.
AliLilly had some absolutely fabulous one!! Check out the one with rosettes, GORG!!
Here's my take on it.
1. Coffee Filters- $1 at Dollar Tree
2. A heck of a lot of hot glue!
Which I have to buy in bulk to satisfy my addiction,
so I already had it.
3. A Form to use- This one was $2 at Walmart
AFTER already buying my form I ran across this bit of genius at Honeyscrap
I get excited and run out to buy the materials, if only....... I could have saved $2
It's a great idea and you know how cheap I am......
You can fold up the coffee filters any way that works for you. Making them shorter as you desire.
I wanted a really full tree to go with my REALLY full wreath :-)
Hot gluing the coffee filters didn't take nearly as long as it did for the wreath.
I'm just meticulous :-)
Working your way up to make the body of the tree.
Totally optional... you can put it on a pedestal of some kind.
Candle holders work great.
And that's my Dollar Tree jingle bell attached with florist wire.
Total: $ 4
But I could have cut that in half with just a little more blog hopping in advance.....
