HERE ARE THE MATERIALS YOU NEED:
Styrofoam cones (I like using three different sizes)
Chunky Chenille Yarn
Hot glue gun
Pom poms for embellishment (optional)
LET’S BEGIN …
- Begin by securing your chosen yarn at the base of the styrofoam cone with a few dots of hot glue.
There are two keys to this project.
The first is to keep the yarn straight, since the lines are a big visual feature of the end product.
This make the first few rows of yarn super important, since they set the foundation for you to follow for all of the subsequent rows.
The second is to not have any gaps in between the rows.
If they aren’t tight, the styrofoam will show through.
Your trees will rapidly stray from the elegant look you are trying to achieve.
2. REPEAT THE COILING AND THE GLUEING OF THE YARN AS YOU MAKE YOUR WAY UP THE CONE.
3. WHEN YOU GET TO THE VERY TOP OF THE CONE, COIL THE YARN AROUND THE TOP A FEW TIMES, SECURING IT WITH HOT GLUE.
Next, snip the excess yarn with a pair of sharp scissors.
Tuck the tail of the yarn into the coil and secure with hot glue.
Repeat the entire process for as many trees as you’d like in your display!
If you prefer a more glitzy, embellished look for these easy to make yarn Christmas trees, you can add pom poms, miniature ornaments, sequins … the possibilities are endless.
