Learn how to make DIY Christmas trees with paper cones and fabric for the holidays.
DIY Christmas trees can be made in so many ways, by wrapping different types of string around paper cones or styrofoam cone forms.
We made trees of wrapped rope, jute, and twine, and we also made Christmas trees wrapped in yarn.
Today, we are making handmade paper cones, and wrapping them in fabric to create a new variety of DIY Christmas trees!
DIY Christmas Trees with Paper Cones and Fabric
Step 1: Gather Supplies
- Cardstock – I used 9×12 sheets and 12×12 sheets.
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Step 2: Make paper cones with cardstock.
Step 3: Hot glue fabric around the paper cone.
Step 4: Finish the top of the cone tree.
The cardstock cone will have a hole at the top of it.
To finish it off, first, fold the tip of your fabric and glue it down over the hole.
Then glue the remaining edges together to finish off the fabric Christmas tree.
Trim off any visible cardstock from the bottom of the tree.
Repeat for all of your fabric choices.
I used a 12″x12″ sheet of scrapbook cardstock to make a large cone, below.
I bought a sherpa sweatshirt at a thrift store to use for this fabric tree.
This is also a great way to repurpose worn-out, stained, or damaged clothing.
I cut fabric from the thrifted shirt, and glued it around the large cone.
You can create paper cones of different sizes to wrap in fabric, and create a fabric Christmas tree forest!
