Fuzzy Christmas Tree

To be honest, I didn’t know what to call this little guy.  Fuzzy cone?  Fuzzy tree?  Fabric-covered tree?  Frank?  I ended up with fuzzy Christmas tree.

I made two of these to go on my Christmasified buffet.  I’ll share the decked out buffet either tomorrow or Friday.  Probably Friday.  I’m hanging with my man, Justin Timberlake, tonight.  Priorities.  I’m sure you understand.

But today I’m sharing this festive project as part of a fun Christmas Extravaganza Blog Hop.  And on Friday there’s going to be an amazing link party where you’ll be able to share your Christmas decor, recipes, and more.  Woot, partay!

Here’s what you’ll need:

• styrofoam or paper mache cone (found at craft stores like JoAnn Fabric, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby)
• fuzzy fabric (found at JoAnn Fabric)
• hot glue gun
• scissors

Put the cone on the edge of the fabric, fuzzy side facing down.  Leave a little excess fabric on the bottom and top.

Run a line of hot glue along the edge of the fabric.  Attach it to the cone.

Roll the cone, covering it with fabric.

Add a line of hot glue where the edges will meet.  Press the fabric onto the glue.

Cut the excess fabric off with the scissors.

Fold the excess fabric over on the bottom and glue it down.

P.S. this specific fabric sheds like a mutha.  It looked like I had murdered a white teddy bear when I was done.  You’ve been warned.

Cut the fabric so there’s about 1/2 inch of fabric above the top of the cone.  Put a dab of hot glue on the top of the cone.  Press the remaining fabric into the glue.

And you’re done!

  1. I’ve done somthing similar but with poster board instead of styrofoam. I took poster board and rolled it into a cone shape. To decorate, I used wrapping paper and attached it the same way you did your fabric. So simple and cheap and oh, so pretty!

  2. i love easy peasy projects like this! and i love that you paired it with the sparkle trees. it reminds me of a pin i just pinned with a sparke mini skirt and big chunky sweater outfit. so cute. is that weird? hah!

    have fun with JT tonight!

  5. Frank! Love it! And the fuzzy tree. :)

  6. I love these. Absolutely love! I’ve been wanting to do something with those cones, but I really like the idea of the soft, fuzzy fabric instead of just felt or whatever. And still super easy!
