How do you make these Jeweled Christmas Trees?
Step 1: Gather your supplies.
You will need:
Step 2: Evaluate what jewels you have to work with.
To make these Jeweled Christmas Trees, you will need a lot of pieces to cover even a small tree. I used 6-inch foam cones, and still needed most of what I had on hand to use.
Put it in a container near you while you glue to keep them easily accessible.
Some ideas to use on your jeweled Christmas tree DIY:
Step 3: Start from the bottom.
If you want to prep the base of your foam cone by painting it, I recommend spray paint. I used a gold spray paint as the base of one of mine and it gave it a really nice finished look.
For this tree, I just left the base white to give it more of a clean, crisp look and to let the jewels stand out.
Use your hot glue gun and start from the bottom and work your way up. Make sure to line up the edges of your pieces with the bottom of the cone so it still stands straight up when you’re finished.
Take your time and try to get the pieces to fit as snugly together as you can without overlapping.
Pro Tip: Use a lot of hot glue on each piece, and press it firmly into the foam to make sure it’s glued well.
Step 4: Add the top.
Once you get to the top, you’ll want to make sure to give it a little something special. I took one of the big floral pieces I had and glued it to to the top and it worked out well.
Leave your piece to sit for at least thirty minutes so the glue can dry and cure.
Now your jeweled Christmas tree is ready to be displayed for the entire holiday season!
Pro Tip: Treat it with care, as you would any fragile Christmas decoration. It’s sturdy, but if it’s in a place where it’s moved a lot it may not age well.
