Instructions

Step 1

Let’s start with crafting the items to decorate the tree. I’m using felt fabric to make spiral rolled flowers. Simply cut out spiral patterns from felt fabric and cut scalloped borders if you want to.

Step 2

Roll the spiral felt cutout from its outer end and keep rolling it towards the center of the spiral. After reaching the center glue the rolled part with the center to secure the rolled pattern. Similarly, create 2 or more spiral rolled flowers.

Step 3

I used 18 gauge golden craft wire to create a star pattern. Decide any simple shape for the star and simply use craft pliers and wire to make one.

Step 4

Determine how large you want your tree to be. Then, cut out a third of a circle from some cardstock paper with the distance from the centre of the circle to the edge being roughly equal to the height you require for your tree. Alternatively, you can use a styrofoam tree form.

Step 5

Roll the quarter circle cardstock to form a cone shape. Apply glue on the overlapped parts of the cone cardstock to secure the cone shape.

Step 6

Grab a burlap fabric strip or burlap lace to wrap the cardstock cone. Start wrapping the cone from its top edge.

Step 7

Continue to roll towards the bottom side of the cone. Apply glue after each wrap to make sure that the wrapping is nice and secure.

Step 8

Now grab all the items selected and crafted to decorate the cone tree.

Step 9

You can decorate the cone tree however you want. Wrap it with a thin lace, add beads, felt flowers, etc. I’ve decorated the bottom part of the cone with lace and felt flowers.

Step 10

The top part of the cone seemed empty, so I added some sequins.

Step 11

Attach the wire star (or you can also use a store-bought star charm) on the top edge of the cone Christmas tree and done!

These trees look especially pretty when you make a few of them, all slightly different, and arrange them into groups. Excellent for decorating the mantle, these trees also make a fabulous centre-piece for your Christmas table.
