I think mini Christmas trees are so adorable , so I wanted to make one that would fit in with my little Coastal House. I purchased a Styrofoam cone shape in my local craft store and decided I wanted to use the smallest shells I could find to decorate it.
- Styrofoam Cone
- Glue Gun
- Silver Acrylic Paint
- Paint Brush
Collect small shells from the beach and clean in a sink of soapy water. To get them really clean you could add a little bleach, but skip this if doing with children. Allow to air dry.
Arrange shells on cone to see what layout you prefer and begin to glue on.
Once dry, you are ready to paint the whole thing in a color you choose or you could use spray paint for a quicker result.
Now you are ready for decorating your ‘tree’. I used pretty ribbons in teal colors and topped them off with some sparkly gems.
I’m going to make little presents to go under my tree for extra cuteness at Christmas 😉
