We love decorating a holiday table, from centerpieces to festive decor. This year, we recommend adding some on-trend colors to your table with these cones that when grouped together look like a vibrant Christmas tree forest. You can find all of the supplies at your local craft store. Earthy greens, coral-pink tones, mustard, and oatmeal will inject some new excitement into your old holiday decorations. You could even use a metallic paint to add some shine!

Things You'll Need

  • Yarn

  • Hot glue gun

Step 1

Paint the cones with your chosen color palette. Allow to dry. Some colors may require two coats.

Step 2

Starting at the top, use a hot glue gun to adhere the yarn to the cone. Then, wrap the yarn around the cone, from top to bottom, adding hot glue every inch. Don't leave any spaces or gaps.
