Glittered Christmas Tree

I needed something tall and red for my mantle this year and after seeing lots of glittered Christmas trees in the stores this year, I attempted to make one myself.  I painted the styrofroam cone with acrylic red metallic paint and sprinkled dollar store red glitter onto the wet paint.  I spray painted an old glass candlestick I had and hot glued it to the base of the tree. I added a silver bell for a little more bling. Total cost $4.49 plus 2$ for the paint and glitter which I still have leftover for other projects.
