Jingle Bell Tree

 Jumping on the cone tree crazy last year, I came up with a fun idea! A Jingle Bell Tree! And most of the supplies I got at the dollar store!
Supplies:
cone
5-6 packs of Jingle Bells
green paint/paint brush
hot glue/gun
Step 1: The jingle bells from the dollar store come attached on a string so you'll have to take them apart first.
 Step 2: Then you pop off the tops of the bells so they will lay flat on the cone.
 Step 3: Paint the cone green for the spaces in between the bells.
Step 4: Hot glue those little babies to the cone! I did rings of each color, you could do all the same color, random, or a different pattern all together.   Totally customizable!
 And VOILA! Done and super cute :) Now, I couldn't decide which way I liked more ... sitting flat like this or
 Or with the glass candle stick like this?
I think I like this :)  If you give it a try, I would love to see how they turn out!!
