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.

Socks are such a staple at Christmas, I really don’t think that there has ever been a Christmas in my life when I didn’t receive socks as a present and I am totally ok with that! I love socks, especially the warm and cosy kind but most of all socks that look cute are the best! I feel like now, more than ever socks are becoming a really big thing in fashion (we’re looking at you Happy Socks!) and I thought it would be super fun to design a couple of pairs this year!

Simply create a circle shape in your Cricut design space (I sized the circles 1 inch in diameter)  and load in your gold iron on into the machine. Allow the machine to cut it out then peel away the negative space leaving only the polka dots. Heat up your iron and iron on the dots, varying the placement as you go, making sure that you cover the entire of the socks. Super simple!
