It’s happened again this year – it’s December 19 and we don’t yet have our Christmas tree. A lot of bloggers stage “Christmas Home Tours” but not me. There’s not much to see here. However, I do want to share a few of the beautiful Christmas Tree Cones I’ve seen across the blogosphere. Oh my goodness, I’ve seen so many creative Christmas Tree Cones this holiday season. Enjoy!
I’ll start with a little glitz, like these Glittering Ribbon Trees from Trish and Bonnie over at Uncommon Designs.
I featured this Jeweled Ribbon Topiary on Crafts ‘n Coffee a few years ago. (You’ll find a few other tabletop Christmas Cones in this round up, too).
Here’s another favorite look for Christmas – pastels. Bev over at Flamingo Toes made the most beautiful Bottle Brush Trees. Her tutorial to make your own bottle brush trees is simply genius. Imagine, you can now make your own bottle brush trees in any size and color you like. And for a lot less than ready-made.
I love a good pasta craft, and these retro, Pastel Pasta Cones from Ismoyo’s Vintage Playground are so much fun.
How about these gorgeous Beads, Baubles and Buttons Trees over at Shabby Gals.
This Pastel Button Tree from Sarah at Makin’ Projiks is the sweetest.
Here’s a button tree in a more traditional color palette. Angie from The Country Chic Cottage shared her Candy Cane Button Cone over on Buttons Galore & More.
If you prefer traditional Christmas colors, don’t miss this Scrap Fabric Christmas Tree from Kelly at Live Laugh Rowe. She made her Scrap Fabric Christmas Tree with miniature rag balls. What a fun way to use up lots of little bits of pretty Christmas fabric.
I’ve seen some beautiful Christmas trees made with a little help from Mother Nature, too. Like these Rustic, Pine Christmas Trees shared by Liz Marie.
Lucky Sherry over at Sheer Serendipity lives close to the beach, and she gathered the shells to make this beautiful Seashell Tree with just a touch of bling.
Jen over at Tater Tots & Jello was inspired to make her own Golden Pinecone Topiaries after seeing similar trees in a Pottery Barn catalog. She shared her money-saving DIY over at iheartnaptime.
I’ve admired a few beautiful, blooming Christmas Cones this season. Like this Red, Rolled Rosette Cone Amy of Positively Splendid made with crepe paper rosettes.
Over at i-candy Handmade, Autie and Jenn made Red & White Flower Trees from silk flowers dusted with glitter.
This Paper Flower Christmas Cone is just stunning. Don’t miss this tutorial from Guiseppa who blogs at My Creations.
I wanted to share a few Christmas Cones the kids can make, too. Chelsey at Buggy and Buddy designed these Simple Felt Cones the kids can decorate over and over again (they’re kind of like an old fashion felt board).
These Pom Pom Cones are so much fun, and super-easy. There’s no tutorial for these, though it looks like the idea came from Target.
Ginger, who blogs at Gingerly Made, shares her Feather and Glitter Trees over on Sugar Bee Crafts. Kids + Glitter = Christmas fun!
Who wouldn’t want to make a Gumdrop Tree? Julie and her daughter made this Gumdrop Tree over at Redhead Can Decorate.
Or, try using gumballs, like Glorious Treats did to make these Gumball Trees.
We’ll finish with dessert, of course. This Cupcake Christmas Tree Cone from Meghan at Buttercream Blondie would be a beautiful way to finish Christmas dinner. Meghan has an easy-to-follow video tutorial so you can DIY it.
This Cake Pop Christmas Tree by Lyndsey at Vanilla Clouds and Lemon Drops is pretty spectacular, too.
The Cupcake Christmas Tree Cone looks so yummy. I could almost substitute that for a real Christmas tree . . . but I don’t think everyone here would agree! So, this weekend, we’ll find the perfect Christmas tree and decorate it. Promise!
Anyone else out there who doesn’t yet have their tree up and decorated?
Happy crafting (and decorating).
