Intro: Fringe Christmas Trees Are Fun and Easy to Make

A simple cone can become elegant fringe Christmas trees in just a few steps.

I might be obsessed with fringe. But I’m not worrying about it. Instead, I’m running after my love and decorating my holiday mantel with a trio of fringe Christmas trees.

Ridiculously easy to make!

Step 1: Start With Cardboard Cones.

Cones can be purchased, which makes it a bit easier. But if youare looking to save a few dollars, you can roll a thin sheet of cardboard (like the back of a notepad) into a perfectly fine cone.

Step 2: Add Glamour to Your Trees: Paint the Cardboard

Rather than giving that earthy-look of cardboard peeking through the fringe, I wanted a bit more glamour for my Christmas trees.

So, I then painted the cones. I used gold and turquoise paint, two of my current favorite colors.

Step 3: Wrap the Cones With Fringe

After the paint dried, I wrapped the cones with fringe that I ordered online. Hot glue worked perfectly.

The spacing of the fringe depends on how much of the background color you want to see.

Step 4: Enjoy Your Holiday Décor!

I’m in love with how the little grouping of Christmas trees shimmers in the changing light of the day.
