DIY Yarn Christmas Trees

I recently joined Pinterest (because I was in desperate need of another distraction) and have discovered some absolutely darling things on there – including these adorable yarn Christmas trees.

I followed the link on Pinterest to the blog that this idea originally came from and much to my delight, found a very helpful step-by-step tutorial. Click here to view the tutorial on the Pretty Ditty Blog and learn how to make your own set of these cute Christmas trees. This is going to be my weekend project, so on Monday I’ll post pictures of how mine turned out.

If you’re going to embark on this little do-it-yourself Christmas craft, this is what you’re going to need:

  • 3 foam cones (varying sizes is best)
  • 1 roll of thick yarn
  • 1 roll of fuzzy yarn
  • Pins
  • Decorations (I’m using fake red berries like in the tutorial but mini ornaments would work well too)
  • Tree topper (the blog tutorial uses stem floral wire to make a star – I’m still on the hunt for a tree topper)
  • Warm seasonal beverage
  • Christmas tunes (if I’m feeling ambitious, I may post a mix this weekend)

I got all my materials from Michael’s (the foam cones are found in the floral section). Have fun!

If you do happen to try this project, please feel free to send me photos and I’ll compile them for a post later this month or next!

  2. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well
    as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did
    you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare
    to see a nice blog like this one today.
