MAKE THESE EASY CONE OMBRE CHRISTMAS TREES

I love a quick and easy DIY as much as the next gal and let me tell you, these ombre Christmas tree cones couldn’t be easier to make! They make such a statement in a festive display too and really POP! I bought the plain cones from Hobbycraft and they were only £2 each so it’s a cheap and effective way to add to your Christmas decorations as well!

YOU WILL NEED:

Plain Christmas tree cones // White spray paint // Colourful spray paint in the shades of your choice (We used berry pink, spa blue and sun yellow from Rustoleum // Gold craft paint // A small paintbrush //

STEP 1:

First you’ll want to spray paint the cones white until they’re completely covered, I did two coats just to make sure. Then allow them to fully dry.

STEP 2:

Next, it’s time to spray paint on your colours, making sure to stop before the bottom of the cone to create the ombre effect. I found it best to spray about two thirds of the cone.
