How To Make Stacked Christmas Tree Topiaries

Silver Christmas Tree TopiariesHave I told you about my slight obsession with silver this year?  I am just in love with the combination of silver and white this year…I guess I truly am dreaming of a white Christmas…with a touch of silver (winks)!  I have had these stacked cone Christmas tree topiaries in my head for a while, but didn’t know how I could make my own.  Well, one day while chatting with a friend, I was staring down my stack of paper mache’ cones that I picked up from Michaels and it hit me!  Today, I want to share this simple trick with you…
