So that of course led me to Pinterest. I wanted something that would be easy for all ages to do, yet something "nice" and not childish, if that makes sense.
First thing I found was little ribbon Christmas trees made out of Styrofoam cones. Well off to Hobby Lobby I go and found a two pack of cones and lots of different ribbon. Hello 50% off Christmas Ribbon!
The cones were kind of pricey at 4.50 for two. So I searched online for a bulk supplier and found The Craft Place. I ordered 48 cones that are 4 inches by 2 1/2. They are 1.16 each.
Oh so lets get back to my sample. It is a bit larger, but that is ok. It is pretty self explanatory. I cut pieces of ribbon that were 3 inches long, folded it over gently and used a Dress Maker's Pin to pin the ribbon onto the cone. Repeat and overlap the layer just a tiny bit.
I wasn't really sure what to put at the top, but thought maybe a sparkly pom pom would look ok, so Miss V and I went to Hobby Lobby this morning and picked up a couple packages. Used another dress makers pin to attach the pom pom.
I also have a TON of cute scrapbook paper and cut them into strips that were 1/2 inch wide and 3 inches long and attached them with the pins.
I think they both look adorable. I love that each child will be able to switch up the colors and patterns and make a truly personalized gift for someone they love.
I think I am going to put these little cuties on our fireplace.
So what do you think of them????? I would love to hear your feedback.
