One of a kind DIY Christmas Tree

One of a kind Christmas TreeOne more Christmas tree craft. I have officially run out of tree cones, so this just may be the last tree for the year…

The idea for this tree came from looking at old Christmas decorations and picks from Christmases past. They just sit in a box year after year, not used, but not being thrown away either. And I had some limpet shells left over from a recent tutorial, but not enough to do another tree. So I just started gluing parts of Christmas picks, marbles, rope and shells to see what I would come up with.

First I wrapped the cone form in white felt. (Looks better than the brown color of the cone to me.)

I used a mish-mash of materials I already had. That meant old Christmas picks, faux berries and leaves from candle holders, marbles, shells, rope, etc.

Starting at the bottom of the cone, I hot glued each item, one at a time. Requires quite a bit of glue sticks and patience. :)

This is what “creativity” looks like in my craft room. A happy mess!

I just added row after row of different items. No plan, just winging it as I went.

I had some limpet shells, from CereusArt, left over from the Limpet Shell tree tutorial, so they HAD to be added! I love the turquoise and red together. :D

Since I had all the supplies for this craft on hand, it was “free” to make. Just a bit of time and a lot of glue sticks!
