Happy Monday, Sweet Friends, since it’s the week before Christmas I thought I would GIFT you with a week full of Christmas DIYs. Enjoy!
I’ve been crafting alot. I’ve been making wreaths and garland and ornaments and Christmas Trees and it’s been so fun and so easy. Decorating your home doesn’t have to be difficult, take alot of time or cost a lot of money!
Craft Christmas Trees!
I love Christmas Trees!!! I mentioned it last week when I showed off my Mason Jar Lid Christmas Trees. Today I’m showing off my newest Christmas Tree, Yarn Christmas Trees. This DIY is so simple and inexpensive and doesn’t take long at all.
Materials needed for the Yarn Christmas Trees:
- Cones come in various colors, sizes and material type. I’d suggest using the FloraCraft Styrofoam Cone in White, 12 inch, 9 inch and 6 inch
- Yarn – I used the thickest yarn I could find.
I had all of the items in my craft closet from prior projects. I placed links for each item above from Michael’s Arts and Crafts so you could easily replicate the project. Don’t forget to use your coupon.
Instructions for creating Yarn Christmas Trees:
- Starting at the bottom of the cone, wrap yarn slowly around the cone adding glue as you go.
- Push the yarn together as you are wrapping the yarn around the cone so there are no gaps. Be careful as the glue is hot.
- When you reach the top of the cone, cut the yarn extra long and tuck under at the top.
I chose to make three Christmas Trees. You can always just make one Christmas Tree but for a bigger impact i’d suggest creating three, five or even seven. Think about your space and what would work well. Enjoy your Christmas Trees!
For this project I had three cones that I had purchased years ago for a project. Reusing is always my preference, but if you don’t have cones at home, I’d suggest purchasing the cone that is the color of your yarn, if possible.
Covering your cone is an optional step. I covered my cones because I was unsure whether or not the green cone would show through, as well as, I wanted to reuse my cone. I can now easily slide the paper cover off the cone. Then I can reuse the cone for another project later. This idea saves on cost and storage!
I hope you enjoy the DIY and are inspired to create something! I’d love to see your creation, so post it on Instagram and tag me. You can follow me on Instagram here at Create With Cynthia.
