Decorative Cork Tree: Day 11

12 Days 2013 HeaderIt seems that I am always seeing these super cool cone-shaped trees made of various things at the holidays…burlap, sticks, ornaments, glitter, and so much more.  I thought, why not make one out of cork circles!

Here’s what you need:

Decorative Cork Tree Supplies

Styrofoam cone (I used a 24″ one), thin cork, circle punch (mine is a 2.5″), straight pins, and glitter glue.

What to do:

  1. Cut circles from cork and add a thin line of glitter glue around 1/2 the circle.
  2. Run a 1″ piece of cork around the base of the cone.  This will give the appearance that the cone is made of cork.
  3. Begin to attach circles to cone with straight pins slightly overlapping as needed.
  4. Continue to work up the cone until finished!

It is perfect below next to our JOY Marquee from Day 9.
