  • Wood slices the version shown is from Hobby Lobby and two trees of this size will take 3 bags
  • Foam cones
  • Hot glue and a glue gun
  • Brown paint
  • Paintbrush


  • Start by painting as many styrofoam cones as you would like with the brown paint.  This ensures that any foam peeking out from your wood slices still looks okay on your final wood slice trees.
  • Allow these to dry completely.
  • Then use hot glue to adhere wood slices to the cone.  I used two rows of slices around the bottom of the cone to cover the styrofoam completely.
  • Then continue up the cone with additional rows hot gluing as you go.
  • End with your top row where you wood slices should touch each other to complete the look of your rustic tree.
