Ornament Christmas Tree

One of my responsibilities when doing craft shows at certain venues, is decorating the booth.  This can be a lot of fun, but also a lot of work.
One of my decorations is this Christmas tree I made yesterday out of a styrofoam cone and Christmas ornaments found at thrift stores.

I took the tops of all the ornaments and then pushed it into the styrofoam cone, assessing the placement before hot gluing them in place.  Be careful you don't burn your fingers!
The larger ones were placed near the bottom, and the smaller ones near the top.  To fill in the spaces I glued in pine cones and larger beads (this is where you can really burn your fingers).
The banner was made using Whisper White cardstock matted with Real Red.  The flowers were made using the blossom petal punch and the small scallop circle punch, with a vintage button & rhinestone placed in the middle.

As I mentioned, all items (except for the styrofoam cone) were purchased in thrift stores.
