You can get cotton candy from almost anywhere from Walmart to your local drug store. Just stuff cotton candy into ice cream cones and make it look like a scoop at the top. Package with cellophane bags and tie with cord or ribbon.
Using any stiffer paper make a cone and tape or staple shut. Use yarn and put long pieces into a bowl and soak it so the yard becomes saturated. Keep wrapping over and over making sure to cross layer to give the tree strength. Let dry on cone. Glue on little pearls and other things you would like on it. Glue on a star. Let dry on cone so it does not lose its shape. Gently loosen and then remove cone. You have a really cool and very very cheap decoration that costs little to nothing.
1~ You can always go out in your backyard to find beautiful things like cones or flowers and bring them in your home to add a beautiful and natural feel to the room.
2~ A room’s floors can add to its beauty because floors are an important element. Redoing hardwood floors can be very expensive so you can place rugs or carpets instead. They create a sense of warmth and coziness in the room. You can look for amazing overdyed rugs for sale and pick the ones that are the best match for your home.

4~ You can look in magazines or on the web to find a room that speaks to you. You can choose picture of a high end room and then mimic that in your space.
