Paper cone trees

I needed something festive go up on the mantel. I have seen some awesome paper/glitter/yarn trees on the internets this season, but I am too lazy and cheap to make any of those involving lots of cutting/curling/buying cones for the base.
 So I rolled up some K&Company Yuletide designer Christmas paper, stapled and embellished. I was going to top them off with glimmer mist, but that seemed like too much effort.
 Wa-la! Instant Christmas-cone-tree-mantel-decor.
Never mind that both my husband and my mother thought they were supposed to be party hats...some people just don't get it! I'm linking this up at Paper Issues Holiday Hook Up linky party, cuz it rocks.

I don't think they look like party hats. They look like trees and they are great!
