I love the look of these adorable and easy-to-make Christmas trees! You’ll just need a styrofoam cone, some yarn, and a few optional embellishments to create them. This project is geared more toward older children and adults, but I’m sure little kids would love to help wrap the yarn and glue on the decorations.

You can display these yarn-wrapped Christmas trees year after year to decorate your home or classroom!

Directions for Yarn-Wrapped Christmas Trees

1. Start at the bottom of your cone. Add a generous amount of glue and place the beginning on your chunky yarn over the glue. Hold for a few seconds to give it a chance to dry a bit. (You’ll definitely want to use a craft glue rather than a school glue for this project.)

 

2. Begin wrapping your yarn around the cone working your way up to the top.

3. Once your get to the top, add another bit of glue to hold the yarn in place.

 

4. Cut off your yarn, leaving about an inch or so.

 

5. Glue the end of the yarn around the top of the cone to fill it in.

We used plain wooden buttons for some trees and colorful buttons on others. Pearl gems or colorful gems would like nice too!

Tips

  • We used rough styrofoam cones. They held the yarn in place as we wrapped it up the cone. If you are using smooth cones, you might want to use a spray glue to adhere your yarn to the cone so it doesn’t slip as you’re working.
  • You can also use a glue gun to glue your yarn at the beginning and end of the project.
  • The chunkier your yarn, the easier and quicker this project is!
