Looking for an easy way to decorate for the holidays? Well, it doesn’t get any simpler than my Holiday Yarn Trees! Just wrap some poster board with fun yarn textures and display! For more easy holiday ideas see my Christmas page. holiday cone tree, yarn tree

If you noticed my last post the Fox Holiday Wreath, you would have seen these three easy trees in action! I needed something to compliment my wreath for this year’s holiday decor. They literally take 10 minutes apiece to make. The hard part was deciding what yarn to use. No need to buy these cute cone trees this year make them yourself! Here’s how ya make them!

Holiday Yarn Trees

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.

Hot glue the end of the yarn to the tip 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!

    So pretty and so easy! I think I will do these with my four year old. I love crafty projects that we can do together that (at least are potentially) elegant.

    If you’re interested, I’d love to have you join my Yarn Fanatic Party!
