I used to be the DIY queen, always painting and creating whatever I could get my hands on. Becoming a mom might have slowed down the rate at which I complete projects, but I still try to create when I can. Hence why I’m always doing kid crafts! It keeps my creative boost flowing while also keeping my girls entertained. However, Christmas time always brings out the more creative side of me and gets me itching to do DIYs for decor and such. I recently went shopping and saw so many little trees I wanted to buy, but the price tags didn’t sit well with me. So I figured, why not make my own trees to give texture around the house and put me on flair on them?! And here we are, I’m going to share a super easy way to create your own yarn trees.
How cute are these mixed in with the bottle brush trees? Make sure to stay tuned to the bottom of the post, I share a quick video of how to throw them together in about ten minutes. I’ll also link up materials too.
1. Gather your materials
You’ll need yarn, tinsel, jute of your choice, styrofoam cone trees, and a hot glue gun. You could add pom poms to your list too if you want to add some more flair! I will mention that thicker yarns work best for this project if you’re looking to do it quickly. The thin yarn took me awhile and I didn’t have much patience to keep moving the pieces down lol. You could also use fabric if you wanted to as well.
2. Hot glue around the bottom
3. Start to wrap yarn around, secure against the glue and then wrap tightly all the way to the top of tree
4. Hot glue the yarn around the top and then add a pom pom if you’d like!
That’s it! How easy was that? I actually don’t mind the spaces between the yarn on this one, but I absolutely love how the other ones I did came out.
I hope you guys enjoyed this craft today! Creativity is a bucket of mine that I do need filled pretty often and as a mom of 2 littles, I need the quick crafts. If you do this craft, I’d love for you to share it on social and tag me so I can see it!
