These little Christmas Trees are so easy to make and look so pretty as a centerpiece or in a grouping on the coffee table…
I made these little trees last week and I wanted to tell you about them! I found these tiny foam balls for $2.99 in the wedding section of a local craft store. They come in the prettiest colors and are supposed to be used in floral arrangements, they’re called Berry Accents and they’re made by Darice.
I bought 3 little tree shaped cones…wondering, could I get those little little balls to stick on those cone????
***I painted the cones a pretty blue-green before I started gluing.***
And then came the glue…
First, I tried my favorite thing: Mod Podge….uhhhh, NO. Didn’t work. Then I tried Elmer’s Glue…that’d be a NO. Next I tried my Mosaic Glue…shoot! Still those little balls fell right off!
As a last resort I grabbed the high-heat glue gun. Perfect!!! Eventually I’m telling ya, I got it down to an art, just put glue on a one to a one-an-a-half inch section and drop some balls on the glue and arrange them so they’re close together. The high-heat is great because it takes a few seconds to get the balls onto the glue and then arranged…while I was doing that the glue cooled off to just the right temperature.
Once I figured out the glue situation the project actually went pretty fast!
I love the way they turned out! I had some left and did a little something else I’ll show you soon. I love these pretties! Have you ever used them for anything other than floral designs? Do share!
