Cute! I love the flexibility in the design, in that it allows you to choose any kind of fabric you'd like. There is no wrong way to make this cone trees. I like using an old sweater that's worn out its welcome. Turn it into something pretty instead! Also, checking your craft/fabric store in the back remnants bin is a real good place to snag a good deal on material if you need to make several of the same type. Perhaps you are doing a buffet table display for the holidays or a wedding?!
