There are so many of these cute trees all over the stores and craft blogs, that I knew I had to add my own version! They are so simple to make! Here’s how I made mine!

Simple Snow Garland Trees

Snow Trees


  • Large styrofoam cone
  • 5 5/8  x  7/8 in
  • 1 bag of Buffalo Snow Frosty Snow large flake
  • Elmers Glue-all
  • Wide paint brush
  • Spray glue
  • 1 can spray glitter


make snow treePaint half of the cone with a thick layer of the Elmers Glue-All, make sure it fills in all the holes. Take handfuls of snow and press into the glue. Let it dry for 30 min. Repeat for the other side.

It takes a little time to dry, but this makes a base of snow on your cone. After it has set, stand cone up and spray small sections with spray glue. Then press more snow onto the cone. Repeat until every area is nice and full.

Next spray with the spray glitter for a little more glam! Let it dry and that’s it!

Garland Trees


  • small styro foam cone
  • 18 in tall, hot glue gun
  • 12 foot tinsel garland


Set your hot glue gun on low so you do not to melt the foam. Start gluing the garland slowly around the bottom, go small section by small section in a spiral. At the top maneuver it a little to get the best tree top look. Trim the end and hot glue in place! That’s it!

Garland OrnamentMy garland had 5 inches left over so I hot glued the two ends of the small piece of garland together to make a cute ball of tinsel. I just added a hook and made this awesome tinsel ball ornament! Too cute.  Next year, I think I will cut up a few garlands and make some of these for my tree!
