Cone styrofoam . Modpodge . 2- 1/8″ Wooden dowels . 2″x2″x1/2″ Wood base . Gold spray paint . Glitter
1. Spray paint (1) wooden dowel & the wood base gold. Let dry completely.
2. Attach gold dowel to wood base with a screw from the bottom, (my hubby helped me here & even routered the edges to look more glitzy. Awww!)
3. Stick (1) unpainted dowel through the top and the gold dowel/base through the bottom of styrofoam until they are nice and snug.
4. Shave off styrofoam surrounding the top dowel until the cone styrofoam is shaped into a nice pointy Christmas-y tree, (cones come slightly flat on top. Don’t worry if it’s not perfectly smooth; the glitter will hide any imperfections.)
5. Paint a thin layer of Modpodge onto cone styrofoam & top wooden dowel.
6. Generously sprinkle glitter until all surfaces are completely sPaRkLy.
(Note: Be sure to glitter the underneath of the tree, too!)
7. Wait until surface is completely dry. Display for your viewing pleasure!

If you’re wondering about the gold snowflake in the middle of the frame, I’ll let you in on a secret: it’s an ornament from the $1 store! I simply copied the method for my glitter candles: modpodge, dust on gold glitter, tack to frame, display. That’s it!
Thanks for the feature HoH! 😉
