DIY: Foam Christmas tree decoration (home decor)

18:35

Hey Beauties!

I started my Christmas edition of home decor. Since I study in another city, I only have time to make my DIYs for the weekend. So I guess, better to start before ;). Today, I wanted to share this cute mini Christmas tree decoration, which base is made from a foam. My mom made this tree last year, or was it year before that?! Anyways, I loved it and decided to make my own, a bit smaller version to decorate my room with.



For this I used:

  • foam cone
  • moss
  • hot glue gun (or any other glue)
  • different sizes of beads (I used the one that I use for making jewelry)
  • decorative wire (I used the one that has a zig zag pattern)
  • decorative ribbon
  • pedestal or a base for the tree



The moss I got from the forest. You can also buy it in the store. Foam cone can also be found in any store, with garden, decorative items. Firstly, I cleaned my moss. I got rid of soil, which was still stuck to the moss. That makes it easier to glue moss to the cone. Then, I used hot glue gun and glued moss on the cone. Taking one patch of the moss and slowly covering up the whole cone. Don't worry if it's not fully covered, because you can still cover the foam with beads and ribbons. 





Then I used this silver zig zag decorative wire and wrapped it around the tree, going in a diagonal way. The I went around the first wire with another. 


I used my jewelry beads for this tree, but any sort of beads will do the trick. Mine even have holes in them :). No worries, it's not seen from a distance. Then I glued my beads in a random matter. I used red, silver and gold color beads. 


I used my thin decorative ribbons to make small bows. I used two different kinds of ribbons, because that's just what I had at home and it actually turned out fine, because I got two different sizes of bows. I also used hot glue gun to glue those to the tree. 




For the pedestal for the tree I used gold plastic circle, which I had as a pedestal for the candle. That object is actually the bottom half of the bronzer packaging that I once broke. I spray painted it with gold color and turned it into any sort of pedestal. I just glued the tree to the pedestal and...finished.


As you can see I went with pretty "basic" Christmas tree. Call me conservative, but I still like the gold red combo the best (unfortunately I only had very small gold beads). This is a very easy way to decorate your room or maybe dorm room with a little bit of Christmas spirit, without going all out. And it can be decorated in so may different ways, using whatever you have at home.

  11. Res krasno izgleda. Jaz sicer ponavadi za božič samo okrasim drevo in nič drugega ne okrašujem, ampak mogoče letos naredim tako drevo po tvojem opisu, ker mi je res všeč. :)
