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.

If you’ve been reading Bespoke Bride since August you would have seen the beautiful Confetti Bucket DIY in collab with Shropshire Petals! I absolutely adored making that ice bucket and loved the way it turned out so much that I wanted to try and recreate one with a Christmas spin! An ice bucket that would be the perfect centre piece for any table and really show off the glitz and glam of Christmas! This year, in our house, the festive theme is metallics so I really wanted my ice bucket to match and include lots of golds, coppers and bronze shades! Let’s get going shall we?

YOU WILL NEED:

Metallic confetti (I went for gold stars) // Crystal type confetti // Glitter // Tinsel // 1 large bucket // 1 smaller bucket (it needs to fit inside the large bucket but also be big enough to hold a bottle) // stones //

STEP 1:

Take your large bucket and fill it with 2-3 inches of water then pop in the freezer and allow to freeze.

STEP 2:

Next, grab the smaller bucket and place inside the larger one then weigh it down with stones to ensure it doesn’t float when we add in the extra water!

STEP 3:

Add another 2 inches of water to the bucket next and sprinkle in some glitter, then allow to freeze.
