Day 8 of 10

Thanks for stopping over!  Hope you are enjoying the first day of December!  Even though I've been doing lots of Christmas Projects for the blog series, it still seems crazy that it's Christmas time.  Not sure why, maybe just because we are in such limbo land right now.  I told Jeff maybe we should have planned a vacation over Christmas this year since it's going to feel so weird not enjoying the holiday prep in our own home with our things.  (little late for that idea)

Well, I will get on with it already!  Today is one of my favorite little projects.  It has been slightly more time consuming, partly because I didn't have all the supplies I KNEW would make it quicker, but I saw these trees on Pinterest and had to make them!

Mine is slightly different...not sure if better... but I like how they turned out.  The reason that they are showing up so late in the game is that...I used tacky glue...  My beloved hot glue gun is buried in storage and I REFUSE to buy 2 of EVERYTHING!!  So it was tedious with tacky glue because it dries so slowly.  DO NOT use tacky glue if you are sane.  Otherwise, the project is simple. 

What you need is a cone (anything works), bells (a lot of minis), twine, and a hot glue gun.  On my second tree (unfinished due to how LONG it is taking with tacky glue) I am sprinkling a few red bells here and there and I think it's turning out cute!

 
These are the perfect little trees for me...a touch of rustic with the twine (I found a thinner off-white twine) and a little dressy with the pretty silver bells.  Precious!
 
 
 
Simple & Sweet!
