Do you get the Lowes Creative magazine? If you don’t, you should subscribe to it…it’s free! Lowes sends out a magazine every couple of months and I look forward to it. The magazine I just received featured Christmas decor. A certain Christmas tree made out of caulk in the magazine caught my eye. You can find it online here.
I read the instructions for the tree and it seemed very easy to make. It also was very cheap and that was right up my alley. I went to Lowes and purchased a tube of caulk for less than $2. I already had the rest of the supplies on hand. After I gathered all of my supplies, I started making my cones. You can either buy the cones or make them. If you don’t know how to make them, this youtube video will show you how.
Next, I filled my caulk gun with white caulk. Then, I put the cone on my hand and started caulking it in a zigzag direction.
Per the instructions, smooth the caulk out.
Next, use a plastic spoon to make your peaks. Place the spoon on the caulk and lift up to make your peak.
After I had all my peaks created, I used some glitter I had from another project to make it look pretty. I put my tree over a bowl and sprinkled the glitter on it. The hardest thing was trying to transfer the tree from my hand to a plate to dry without messing up the peaks. I was able to make three trees with the cones I made. It was well worth the $2 spent on it!
