Christmas is just around the corner and we all know that holidays always leave us broke. Some of us just want to save money as much as we can especially if you have a lot of family and friends to share blessings with. One way to lessen your expenses is make something without spending too much or maybe nothing at all. A lot of stuff we can make by recycling or using supplies that we already have lying around our house, like this project today. Here is a nice-looking tabletop Christmas tree that looks expensive but actually made of inexpensive materials.
- Mod Podge (paper)
- Glitter (disco)
- Confetti glitter (disco)
- White cardstock
- Star Christmas Tree topper
- Empty small container
- Glue stick
- Plastic spoon
- Popsicle stick
- Gold thread or string (optional)
- Paint brush
1. Make a cone using the cardstock and glue stick. Use the scissor to trim and even the base.
2. Grab the empty container and pour some mod podge, confetti glitter and glitter. Then, mix well.
3. Start coating the cone with the mixture. Add mod podge and glitters if you need more.
4. Pour disco glitter on top of the coating while it’s still wet. Then, dry an hour or two. You might have to dry it for few more hours if mixture the is too thick.
5. Cut enough hole on top of the cone and insert the star topper.
If you want to make a bigger cone, you’re going to need a poster board. Use a hot glue gun to secure the closure of the cone.
Use mask if you don’t like to inhale the smell of the mod podge. Don’t inhale or sneeze close to the glitters. This diy is not for little kids.
