One of the best ways to bring some festive cheer into your home during the holiday season is by making your own decorations!
If you’re looking for a super simple and budget-friendly DIY project, why not try making some holiday yarn trees? These cute and colorful trees can be made in just a few easy steps, and they add a cozy touch to any room. Plus, these cuties are a kid-friendly craft to do with kids!
To make these decorative cone trees for Christmas, start by gathering some materials such as posterboard, heavy cardstock, and/or foam cones and make them in 3 different sizes. Use colorful yarn in various shades, glue, and scissors.
Begin by applying a small amount of glue to the bottom of the cone and securing one end of the yarn to it. Then, gently wrap the yarn around the cone, covering it completely until it reaches the top.
You can experiment with different wrapping patterns such as crisscrossing or spiraling to create unique textures.
Once you’ve finished wrapping the yarn around each cone, trim any excess and secure the loose end with another dab of glue.
Now comes the fun part – decorating! You can personalize each tree with ornaments like small baubles or beads that complement your chosen color scheme.
Add a festive touch by attaching mini pom-poms or tinsel strands onto each tree using hot glue.
Arrange these handmade holiday yarn trees on an entryway table or mantel for an eye-catching display that will catch everyone’s attention this holiday season!
You may have noticed my post with the Fox Holiday Wreath, you would have seen these three easy trees in action! I needed something to compliment my wreath.
No need to buy these cute Christmas cone trees this year make them yourself! Here’s how you make them!
Roll your poster board into a cone with a tight point. Hot glue the flap side down tight.
Trim the bottom flat so the cone will stand up level and straight.
Add hot glue to the tip of the cone or inside the tip, let it dry, and start wrapping. I added a line of glue about an inch long horizontally down the cone as I wrap to keep the yarn snug. Glue the end to the bottom.
For the white cone, I wrapped the baker’s twine crisscross in an argyle pattern. Glue on your dingle ball trim or just leave them plain, and that’s it! So easy and fast to make! Check out my matching Sweet Fox Holiday Wreath tutorial, it’s super easy to make as well!
