5 Minute Garland Tree

You need:
18 ft garland, 12" tall styrofoam cone and about 14 straight pins.  
I picked this 18 ft garland for $3.  The cone has been laying around my craft area for the last 4 years waiting.

Lay the garland across the top of the cone and secure with a straight pin.

Start wrapping and pin the first 3 rows. 
Continue wrapping and poke a pin in every 6 rows.

At the bottom put at least 5 straight pins into the last row to hold it in place.

This really did take 5 minutes, and I think it is going to look great with my other decor.  
I think I might whip up a few more in different colors!

I think I'm going to have to do this project!! This has to be way cheaper than buying the ready made for a cha-ching price.

I just bought more Styrofoam cones tonight, they were 3.50 so total for the tree was 6/50, i think that is a steal!!!
