Today on Mass Appeal we are going to show you how to make themed Christmas trees for under $10! As you know, I buy 90% of my supplies for the show at the Dollar Store to show it doesn’t cost a lot of money to make something fun. This is a quick, easy craft you can do with your kids in less than an hour. *Unless you choose the really artsy designs which will take longer. Here’s what you will need for this family friendly craft:
Hot glue gun & glue sticks
Christmas decorations such as garland, small bulbs, etc
LED battery powered lights
Custom Themed Tree Ideas
Men’s ties (Shown tomorrow)
Candy (Shown tomorrow)
Costume Jewelry such as earrings, bead necklaces and pins
Dog treats and toys
Cosmetics (trial size lipstick, etc)
Silk Flowers (Shown tomorrow)
Plastic Spoons in metallic silver
Mini bottles of liquor
You can use anything you can glue down. The only limit is your imagination! These trees ARE the gift. You can make a theme to match the personality of the recipient. I made a tree out of men’s ties for Bruce, a candy tree for my uncle and a baby themed tree for Lauren. I even tried my hand at “country rustic” which didn’t turn out very well. (Another Green Acres Zsa Za moment!). I will show examples and give you basic instructions on the show at 11am. These trees are all over Youtube so if you get stuck, just google DIY Christmas Tree CONES. You’ll be amazed at what people have created!
As always, thank you for selling us your unwanted costume jewelry. I use it in crafts like this! Give us a call if you have any questions. Texts are always welcome.
Happy Holidays and MERRRRRYYYYYYY CHRISTMMMMMAASSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Ho ho ho!
