Beachy Cone Christmas Tree

Merry Christmas Everyone,

I whipped up this easy  tree last Christmas and in my rush , left out a few important photos, so read the text this time, not look at the few tutorial pics..

Right, so you will need; A polystyrene cone, glue and twine. Quite simply, wrap the twine around the cone, securing with glue, here and there,  as you go. Hot glue would work much better, but I was in a hurry at this point.

Then I painted these cute plastic beachy charms white and when dry, I threaded onto clear nylon thread and wound over the twine, securing with a dot of glue at the ends.

A small wooden craft star was painted white and once dry, I outlined with glue and sprinkled Epsom Salts on to it to give it a sparkle. Glue to the top of the tree.

And there you have a Beachy Christmas Tree.... I love it!

This is how I displayed it last year, a shelf full of beachy goodness!
  And here it is this year! Cute right?

I wish you all a wonderful and happy Christmas. 
Please be safe and take care.
