Merry Modern Xmas Tree Tutorial
Try This: Modern Mini Christmas Tree

It's time for another Merry Modern Christmas project!  This time, I'm classin' up some ice cream spoons to create graphic little miniature Christmas tree.

Read on for the full tutorial.

MATERIALS: Cardboard Tree Form/Cone, Wooden Ice Cream Spoons, Black, White, and Gold Spray Paint, Craft Glue

ONE: Paint about 1/3 of your spoons gold, another third white, and the final third black.  Also paint the tree form in one of the three colors.  I chose the black since it covered the easiest.

TWO: Glue a ring of spoons all the way around the tree form in one of the three colors.

FOUR: ...and then another ring in the last color.

FIVE: And so on until the whole form is covered.  Top it off with a little twine bow or some such embellishment of your choosing.

Those are some classy ice cream spoons, no?
