{CRAFTY TIP TUESDAY} 5 minute Christmas tree decor

Hey everyone!! It’s me, Staci from lizard & ladybug.
Today I am sharing a quick 5 minute Christmas tree decor IDEA!

 Honestly, this whole project took about 5 minutes!

A trip to the dollar store inspired me (that happens a lot) to make these simple SIMPLE trees.

It almost seems silly to call this a ‘tutorial’..but here goes.
This is what I used.

Cone shaped form - $1
Curling ribbon $1
Metallic spray paint  - from my craft stash
Not pictured: glue dots

I sprayed the cones and let dry. 
This took all of ~1 min!
A glue dot held one end of the ribbon on the top of the cone. 
I loosely wrapped the ribbon around the cone until I got the look I wanted.

I used a glue dot to secure the other end of the ribbon to the cone.
The red one needed some buddies.

I love a super simple (and inexpensive) project, especially one that is shiny!!
