String cone trees

I am feeling really festive now that the decorations are up.  For the past hour I have been watching a variety of  videos on you tube which show how to make Christmas trees from a cone and some string. I had planned to buy some string as it never occurred to me to use crochet cotton.... In my stash there is  tons of thick crochet cotton .  Woo Hoo, thank you Lyndsay  (The Frugal Crafter)  I think you should all go and check out her tutorial and make some too.  Did you notice how I said some?  Well we all know that I am not just going to make one don't we.    :-)  If I can find the jar of water bombs in my craft room I will make some of the balls too.  I have ton's of glitter and think it will be coming out to play today.....   Check out the link to The Frugal Crafter....  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGUu141XpLA

And then go and  check this link too as the glitter tree is so simple to make..... we all know how I am planning to spend my afternoon while my menfolk are at the rifle range.     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZA-chjbMWc

And then you can decorate glass jars.  Wouldn't the windows look pretty if you drizzled a little glass paint in.  ........  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfERtU2GdVk

I will post pictures over the next few days.
