Holiday Centerpiece Trees
Pair paper with cones of STYROFOAM™ brand foam to create a forest of centerpiece trees. Substitute felt, fabric or fleece for the paper and your design choices are almost endless.
Designed by The Dow Chemical Company
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam Cones (we used): 12-inch x 4-inch, 9-inch x 4-inch
- Scrapbook Paper of choice: 12-inch x 12-inch sheets
- Small Silver Ornaments (2)
- Foam-Safe Spray Adhesive
- Low-Temp Glue Gun and Glue Sticks or Thick White Craft Glue

Use patterns to cut cone coverings from scrapbook papers. Papers will need to be pieced together to cover the cones.
Spray foam cone with adhesive; wrap cone with paper cut in previous step. If needed, spot glue and pin edges in place. Let dry completely. Repeat with second cone
Glue silver ornament to top of each cone.
Use photo as a guide and follow manufacturer’s instructions for all products used.
Easy-to-make holiday trees can also be displayed on fireplace mantels, coffee tables, book shelves, and window sills. To create tree ornaments, use a smaller cone and add a hanging ribbon at the top.
