Comments - How to: Make Modern Perforated Tabletop Christmas Trees

Anonymous on Sep 29, 2014:

Love this idea! A fun addition might be to line the inside with small scraps of lighting gel to get the effect of Christmas lights.

Injoyed making these a lot, my son keeps them lit in his room all year.

I just made these!! Thanks so much for the idea! But...I found the cones in the cake decorating section...FYI! Again, thanks for a great idea!

I'm always thinking I can find something else to do with it this idea was perfect for a bunch of plastic serger cones I saved years ago (quite a few). I could never come up with the Perfect craft and Finally I did I used the plastic cones instead of the papermache ones turned out wonderful! Thanks for the idea!!!

I love these. I think I will make some and spray them with silver glitter (it's sold during halloween) over the white. Thanks for sharing your talent.

I love these. I think I will get some of the silver glitter in a can (the one they sell for halloween, also comes in gold) and spray that over the white.

I love these. I'm going to make some, ok lots but I think I will try spraying (over the white spray paint) with the silver (or gold) spray glitter you can get in a can at halloween time. And if you hit the store the day after halloween you can usually get it on sale.

Love these! I have a slight obsession with 'cone' christmas trees... I'm going to have to check out the doll section. It sounds like they are less expensive than the styrofoam cones... I just found your blog via two other blogs about 2 different projects in literally less than 2 minutes! I have to be your next subscriber!

There's also that fake white clay stuff crayola makes. It comes out very smooth and white.  If you used it and a paper template, you could do this without drilling or painting.

I think I might attempt this with cardstock and hole punches!

Found your post on pinterest.  A-MAZ-ING!!!!  I'm going to look for some of those cones this afternoon!  You could really do a lot of variations with this, but the white is so elegant.  I plan on whipping up a few of these for my table centerpiece (with the LED tealights - brilliant!!).  Thank you!  :)

I could see a whole forrest of these trees on my entertainment center. Today while at the stire I'll see if they have these cones. I think I'll see if they'll look good in teal and pink - some of the colours I am decorating with this year.

This is a really neat project. I wonder what else I can drill holes in :)

Those are great! I can't wait to make a mini forest for my fireplace mantel :)

This looks great!

I'm not sure our local crafts store has the cones, but I'll try to make my own.
