25 Days of Christmas Ornaments DAY 6 is a VERY cold Pacific Northwest day.  The girls' school day was canceled due to snow & we've kept busy doing other things.
The local Festival of Trees is taking place this weekend and in honor of that, I've made an adorable little tree.
So far I haven't had to purchase any special items for my ornaments (I don't imagine that will last long).  I had some leftover cardboard cones, some burlap and I always have hot glue on hand.

I trimmed a piece of burlap, approximately 1 x 12 inches

I attached it using hot glue and folded it in half as I wrapped it around the cone so you can't see the cone through the burlap.

I trimmed off the loose pieces, added a pin with a bead to the top of the tree (it just pokes through the pointy end).  As you can see the pin also has a loop perfect for attaching a hook.

Some teeny tiny rhinestones make it sparkle and it's ready to hanging on the tree.
