Twinkling Trees

Try this easy project that require few materials and looks great on a mantel or buffet table.

Supplies

  • Green card stock
  • Plastic foam cones (Ours are 8, 12, and 16 inches tall)
  • White glue
  • White glitter
  • Mica flakes
  • Tweezers
  • Straight pins

Instructions

  1. Punch enough leaf shapes from green card stock to cover a plastic-foam cone (these are 8, 12, and 16 inches tall).
  2. Mix equal amounts of white glue and water in a bowl, and white glitter and mica flakes in another bowl.
  3. Use tweezers to dip leaves into the glue mixture and then into the glitter mixture; let dry.
