Happy Monday everyone!!!
Sadly strep throat and I still haven’t broken up. It’s one of those relationships where I want to move on, but he just won’t let me go. My throat itself is better, but that has been replaced with congestion, horrible body aches, and a fun cough — just to to top things off.
Along with this nastiness lingering, so has my christmas decor. This weekend, come hell or high water, it had to go. It definitely isn’t as fun taking it down as it is putting it up. So after all the yuletide joy got boxed up and put away, my house was looking a little sad and naked.
Having very little energy, I decided to do a super easy Valentine’s Day craft to give my bare little table a new pop of color.
All you will need is:
- Some cardboard cones (I got mine at Michael’s),
- Some ruffle trim,
- Spray paint that coordinates with your trim, and
- A glue gun
First you will need to spray paint your cones. I wanted two cones hot pink, one white, and one light pink, so I painted each accordingly.
After you cones are dry simply start gluing your ruffle trim all the way around your cones.
I started at the bottom and worked my way to the top, gluing along the way, making sure that none of the cone showed.
Could there be an easier project? I think not!
So if this girl, in a NyQuil coma, who hasn’t gotten dressed or left her house in 10 days can do it … so can you!
Personally, I love the way they look setting next to me on my aqua side table.

This is one of those “great minds think alike” moments! I’m in the process of doing something similar, but making my own ruffles using my BERNINA sewing machine and some of the multitude of fabric I already own. I love the delicateness of the ruffle trim you used though, and when I get my blog up and running again, will be sure to link to your pretty project!
I’m so sorry that you are still sick 🙁 You’ve had it for a long time. I hope you start to feel better soon. Love the Valentine’s Trees.
I love your trees. So simple! I’m going to Michael ‘s tomorrow, maybe I’ll pick up some of those cones.
Get well soon!
