Scalloped Cone Tree DIY

'Twas the week before Christmas, and I was still DIYing decorations for the house... This one is super simple!

What you will need:
Foam cone (any size)
Plain straight pins (flat head)
Felt 1/2 yard
Round object (to trace for scallop edge)
Yard stick

1. Cut 1 inch to 1-1/2 inch strips from the longest edge of your felt. It took me about six strips, but I had a tall (14 inch) cone.
2. Trace the scallop onto the felt using your round object (I used a roll of washi-tape).
3. Cut out your strips.
4. Start wrapping at the bottom of the cone, placing pins in as you go.  Keep wrapping until you reach the top. You have to get a little creative here to get it to neatly cover the tip.
5. Randomly place your beads around, and use your pins to hold them in place.
6. You're done!
