Couple of days ago I went to a Christmas- party and I made this as my Secret Santa present. The maximum amount of money people were allowed to spend was 5. People at the party were kind enough to made fun of it and the recipient said he would spray paint over it to make it usable. I feel so warm now. Luckily I spent only 80 euro cents for the cone, rest of the supplies were from my stash.
Anyways, I love it. My sister loves it and wants to have one for herself and I hope my fellow craftsters find it cute too.
Here it goes.

Thanks for looking!

I think this is absolutely adorable!  My mom and I have plans to make something similar this year when I get back home.  Yours has given me some really good ideas.  It is super cute!  Great job!!!!

I love these! i would use them as decoration on side tables and stuff.

Dear Craftster Friends,
Three years ago, I was much younger and dumber and I flaked on a few swaps. I am back and I promise to make it up to everyone I hurt. I had been flaked on a couple of times, and I know how cra**y it feels. I am really sorry.

I think its cute! its great for a tree topper, I am not religious and have not been very happy with ANY of the selection out there for tree toppers. Who woulda thunk the solution would be a crafty one. DERR haha. But I really like this. sorry people are jerks Sad You're right, it would also look cute as just something on an end table..cuz then its kinda like a modern interpretation of a tree, being conical.

ooooh  I want a set of these on my (atm considerably cluttered) book shelves for christmas.  I'm wisting, and hope that last years experience with the rude recipient hasn't put you off making more of these this year.
