This was such a fun project and a great way to use your tree cones! These are the supplies I used for this project:
- 17-inch Tree Cone
- Jean Scraps
- Brown Paint for Base
- Hot Glue Gun & Sticks
I cut the lace to the general shape needed to cover the tree cone and trimmed it as needed. I used mod podge to attach the lace to the bottom of the tree above the trunk. Then I mod podged the seam closed.
I painted the base with dark brown paint.
I then covered the tree with denim flowers! I will explain how I made the three types of flowers I used below!
This is a really simple flower to make! I first learned how to make this flower with felt. You can see how to make this type of flower at the link below!
Here is a gallery that depicts the steps to making a rose. I first fold the end and start rolling the denim from the bottom. Then when you get mid-way up the fold you can start twisting and wrapping the denim around itself to make the flower body. Once you get to the end of the flower use hot glue to secure the fabric.
To make this flower I cut scraps I had from the other denim flowers into the shape of petals. I cut smaller petals for the inside of the flower and glued those to the felt ball center first. Then I glued on the bigger petals all the way around after. You can add as many layers as you want!
