Do you love to make little trees for the Christmas season?
Every year I make a different Christmas tree trio using whatever I happen to have in my stashes.
It’s fun, easy, and inexpensive because I’m using what I already have.
How to Make a Ribbon Lace Tree
For this year’s tree trio I’m using some thrifted ribbon lace, the pink puff ball yard that I used in my repurposed thread spools garland, and 3 styrofoam cones.
Just for fun I like each member of my tree trios to be different.
Like anything in home decor they don’t have to match, they just have to go with each other.
For my first ribbon lace tree I’m using the pink and white ribbon and the largest styrofoam cone.
With my glue gun I stated attaching the lace around the cone.
And I just kept going.
The medium sized cone got the light pink lace treatment in the same way.
Easy Peasy Puff Ball Yarn Tree
For the smallest cone I cut a whole bunch of the puff balls off of the yarn, and they were just glued on as well.
Here they are all done… my two ribbon lace trees and one puff ball yarn tree.
These were so easy to make and took about 30 minutes in total.
I scrounged through my stashes for some tree toppers.
The large ribbon lace tree has a vintage silver tone and faux pearl brooch as it’s tree topper.
I simple pinned the brooch through the top of the styrofoam cone to hold it in place.
The light pink ribbon lace tree has a combo of a vintage rhinestone stud earring and the tinsel part of a pink light reflector as its tree topper.
To hold it in place I just pushed the stud earring into the styrofoam.
The sweet little puff ball tree has a piece of a vintage bracelet as it’s tree topper.
This piece still has it’s bracelet links so I just bent them back and the piece sits on the top of the tree.
Even though the tree toppers are fun….
I think I prefer them without.
What do you think?
These little trees can be made using so many things. Check out your own stashes and see what you have to make your own tree trio.
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
