Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I'm the DIY wannabe behind How to Nest for Less!
I'm excited to be guest blogging with Megan at A Little Knick Knack for her Christmas series! I'm a HUGE fan and so grateful to be sharing a quick and easy project with you guys today. So the holidays are fast approaching and I feel like I'm running out of time to get new Christmas projects completed in time for our upcoming parties. So how about a quick splash of holiday décor? Voila! FIVE MINUTE TINSEL TREES!
Oh how I love the Dollar Tree! While wandering aimlessly through the aisles the other day to kill some time, I spotted some 9ft tinsel garlands that were screaming for a cheap project.
I found some cheap cardboard cones from Michael's in the Christmas section. I picked up two small and one large and planned to make some cheap and fun tinsel trees!
First thing I did was get out my hot glue gun. I glued one end of the tinsel garland to the top of one of the small cones.
I then wrapped the tinsel around the cone all the way to the bottom and glued along the bottom edge.
Once the glue was dry, I went back and glued the loose midsection of the garland to the base. Much easier to space out my tinsel this way!
And that's about it! Super easy 5 minute project! The best part? All three Christmas tree cones cost less than $8!
These are absolutely perfect to scatter around the home, use as a centerpiece or end table décor. I actually have mine on huge candlestick holders on my fireplace hearth. LOVE.
Well, thanks for letting me share a new project with you guys! And Megan, thanks so much for inviting me to A Little Knick Knack for the day.
Much ♥ to everyone, Erin
