Christmas decor: cone tree

 This was a fun, quick and SIMPLE project. Kinda quirky. Kinda whimsical. Here's a quick tutorial. 

Step 1: Find a cone. This is a styrofoam cone from the craft store (12-inch I think?)

Step 2: Find some yarn or string. This yarn is some sort of wrapped twine.

Step 3: Start from the bottom and wrap upwards, leaving no white space in between rows. Dab glue every inch or so. (I used low-temp hot glue.)

Step 4: Decorate! I used bells (found them at the craft store -- 12 for a dollar).

Note: I ran out of yarn for the last top inch of the tree, so Chris crafted me a felt star.
