Christmas Dreaming Mini Tree

By: Benetta Strydom for FaveCrafts.com

Bring a little holiday cheer to any room with this Christmas Dreaming Mini Tree.  Decorated with simple reminders of the season, including bows, ornaments, angels, and even Santa Claus himself, this decorated mini Christmas tree is a great way to add a festive touch to your office, bedroom, or living room.  This is also a great way to use up various odds and ends in your Christmas box, from leftover gift embellishments to festive buttons and baubles.

Materials:

  • Polystyrene cone

  • Sewing pins with colored heads
