Christmas time is here and we have been busy doing lots of fun Christmas crafts like this cute Scene in a jar craft and our Christmas Eve box craft. Today’s craft is a bit of an upcycle project. We had some little tinsel trees from Poundland last year, but I wasn’t all that keen on them so they went back up in the loft. That was until I saw a genius idea from Mr Carrington’s Youtube channel who turned them into a lovely Christmassy focal point so I just had to have a go myself!
What you need –
Tinsel tree base – If you don’t have one of these you could make a wire frame using Hobbycraft or other craft store supplies.
First I took the tinsel off the tree and painted the tree base with my white chalk paint. This paint dries really quickly so there wasn’t much waiting around.
Then I glued on my pinecones to fill in the gaps.
Once the pinecones were all in place I just brushed the tips with a little chalk paint.
This is a super quick craft and looks so much better now than it did as a tinsel tree.
