Make this whimsical tree to brighten any room for the holidays!
- Time:2 hours
1Project time does not include drying time for the paint.
2Cut the Styrofoam cone into five different pieces of varying sizes. Make the first three cuts from the pointed end at a slant. Make the last cut straight.
3Cover each Styrofoam piece with a different cardstock. Make them slightly larger so that the edges of the cardstock can be folded over onto the tops and bottoms of each piece. Allow to dry. Measure the tops and bottoms of each piece and cut out circles to cover Styrofoam cone parts. Each piece should be completely covered.
4Cut 1/2 inch strips of Lime Green kids foam using scalloped-edge scissors and glue to the edges of each section. Do not glue to the bottom of the bottom piece or the top of the top pieces.
5Cut the dowel into four 2-1/2 inch pieces. Find the center of each Styrofoam cone piece, insert dowel piece and hot glue into place.
6Wrap the dowel pieces in Emerald chenille stems. Make bows with ribbon to tie each section with. Trim excess ribbon if needed. Paint the Styrofoam ball Apple Red and hot glue to the top of tree.
