Yarn Wrapped Christmas Trees
Christmas time is here and I LOVE it! This simple, diy Christmas craft was an idea we came up with after a sisters’ trip to TJ Maxx. We came across some cute yarn wrapped Christmas trees while out shopping, and we knew we could easily make our own for a fraction of the cost!
These diy Christmas trees would be a fun project to do for a ladies’ craft night! Or you could make these for a handmade Christmas gift idea. Who wouldn’t like receiving a cute set of these?
What’s so great about this craft is that the options really are endless! We were going for a neutral look and chose this yarn color, but you could do any color combinations to match your Christmas decor! Just make sure you choose a super bulky yarn! Or go for another totally different look with some ribbon or trim. 🙂
YARN WRAPPED CHRISTMAS TREES . . . .
an easy, diy craft for the holidays!
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
styrofoam cones (we used this size for the small, and this size for the large)
a super bulky yarn (we chose a yarn weight of 6)
hot glue gun
This yarn from Hobby Lobby is really nice! I highly recommend it for this project. And, it comes in several color options!
To start, put a dab of hot glue and position the end of the yarn on the cone. You’ll want to make sure it’s secured well, since it’s the start of the whole thing.
Put more hot glue down and and start wrapping. Your first line of yarn needs to cover up the styrofoam cone. So, make sure it’s positioned where no cone will show.
Keep adding hot glue and wrap!
Wrap, making sure each line of yarn is snug against the other.
Here’s what to do when you get to the top of the cone to end it off.
Put a dab of glue down, and coil it nicely on the top.
Cut the yarn.
Put a dab of glue in the center and hide that yarn tail in the center.
Add little pearls if desired!
These yarn cones come in a variety of sizes, so if you want tiny ones like these or ones as large as these, your options are endless! How cute would tiny ones be as ornaments?!
HERE’S WHAT WE DID TO GET A DIFFERENT LOOK ON ONE OF THE YARN TREES
WRAP THE TREE IN YARN LIKE NORMAL FIRST.
THEN, TAKE THE END OF THE YARN AND POSITION THE END OF THE YARN AT THE BOTTOM, AS SHOWN, AND GLUE.
RANDOMLY WRAP AROUND! SECURE WITH HOT GLUE WHERE NEEDED.
OPTIONAL- HOT GLUE PEARLS ON WHERE DESIRED
THESE TREES WOULD LOOK CUTE ON PALLET SHELVES LIKE THESE:
