Christmas DIY: Burlap Trees

I love the look of burlap when it comes to decorating for anything- weddings, fall, Christmas, etc.  I saw a few burlap trees at Home Goods a few months back and decided they would make a perfect DIY project.  I got a medium and a large cardboard cone from Michaels and a yard of burlap from JoAnns.  I cut the the burlap into 3/4" wide strips about 5" long, looped them, and hot-glued them one by one onto the cones.  It took an hour or so to do both trees and I am so happy with how they turned out.  I apologize for not taking more pictures during the process but hot glue sure makes it difficult to! I love the rustic, frayed look the trees have and I can't wait to use them for many Christmases to come.
