Coffee Filter Christmas Trees

Ever since I made my Coffee Filter Garland, I've been really obsessed with what these little babies can do. Last night, I made coffee filter trees, two ways.

For this one, I just folded the filter in half, then tri-folded it and hot glued it down. Hubby and I agree it would look a little better with a star on top or something:
 And here's the favorite. I also tri-folded these, but then I folded the end so that the filter stuck up a bit more before I glued it.
Also, I am excessively cheap, so I didn't even buy the styrofoam cone shapes for these ($3.99 for two small ones at Wal-mart!). Instead , I took a plastic cup topped with some folded and taped scrapbook paper (ignore the filters here, my son was playing with them).
 And I just realized that I forgot to show off my coffee filter wreath I made awhile back. I didn't buy a wreath form for this either, just some cardboard that I cut in a circle!
