These little burlap Christmas trees are easy and fun to make, not to mention pretty inexpensive, especially if you already have a few items on hand. I talk a lot about shopping at Hobby Lobby. First of all, I love the fact that I live less than a mile from a Hobby Lobby. Second of all, I love that it is a Christian based company. Third of all, I love that they have 50% off sales weekly. Finally, I love that if the item you are buying is not already 50% off, you can simply go online and get a 40% off coupon any day of any week! And no, I do not make a dime from saying these things about Hobby Lobby!

With that in mind I bought 3, 15 foot spools of burlap ribbon at 1/2 price each, for a total of about $10 to make all three trees. I also bought some spray glitter for one tree for about $4. I already had all my other items on hand: hot glue and poster board to make paper cones.

I used three different widths of burlap just for experimentation purposes.

Personally, I think my favorite is the more narrow width. It was a little easier to work with and it turns out to have a tidier appearance.

Very simply, make various sizes of paper cones from poster board. I am no expert at making paper cones, I simply watched a You Tube video on how to do this. Check it out… Make a Paper Cone.

Measure how much burlap you will need to wrap around the based of the cone. Fold the burlap in half and glue the top of the fold together.
