Just in case you missed my diy Faux pallet

Step 1

Paint cone with chalky paint, let completely dry.

I used a dark brown color so when it peeked through it would go with the decor.

I took the wired ribbon and started at the top.  I hot glued the piece and basically did a fold over, stuck a pin,and continued to fold in a downward direction.  

In between,

I did a row on two opposite ends and in between I cut small burlap squares, did a fold over, and pinned in between the two rows of burlap ribbon until all was covered.

The large cone was the most time consuming, however, it did turn out the prettiest. I topped it as you will see with a dollar tree clip on embellishment.

The second tree. I simply wrapped burlap around it, and pinned in between.  Nothing more to it.

The small tree I left mostly unveiled.  I did add a sparkly mod podge as you can see a slight pretty glitter effect.

I added some red and green ribbon using the ribbon method {ok that sounded odd}

using the ribbon technique I used above.  Start at top and work down folding inward and upward until you reach the bottom.

And here they now reside on our coffee table.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! See my Holiday burlap pillow in the background.  I am starting to get a theme around here if you noticeKiss
