DIY: Bell Tree


Photobucket

Are you sick of my all my foam tree DIYs?
Too bad- here's another one
I'm pretty sure it's going to be my last but no promises
This tree is pretty much the same as the ornament tree except there is no lip to press into the cone so you will be using a whole lot more hot glue this time

Here's what you need:
A foam cone
Hot glue gun with plenty of glue sticks
Gold spray paint or match whatever color your bells are
Lots of small bells I used a little over 100 on a 13" cone

The first thing you are going to do is spray paint your cone so that any visible gaps will match your bells.
Than you cut the strings off of your bells if they have them.
The quickest way is too line them up on your scissor's blade and snip

Now- the fun part
You are going to completely cover your cone in bells with hot glue
I started at the top of my cone and worked my way down going in circles
I found this to be the easiest way without having a ton of gaps
Once you are done remove any hot glue strings that may have formed

That's it- another super simple yet gorgeous holiday decoration
