Crafty Times: Wee Holiday Trees

We love festooning the shop with festive decor this time of year, and are always looking for fun ways to incorporate yarn into our decor.

My favorite new project has to be these wee yarn-wrapped trees. All it took was a quick trip to the craft store and a search through the leftovers bin for some green yarn.  In a few minutes we had these delightful trees. And because I love a bit of sparkle (and an excuse to get out the glue gun), we added sequins in Stash colors.

DIY Wee Holiday Tree

Materials

  • 50 yards medium-weight yarn (quantity may be more or less depending on the size of your cone). We chose green but think a snowy white would be lovely.
  • Cardboard cone
  • Glue; we used a glue gun, but Tacky glue would work well too.
  • Beads, sparkles, sequins, Pom poms; anything goes when it comes to embellishing your tree.

Add a small dot of glue at the top of the cone to secure the end of your yarn. Begin wrapping the yarn around the cone, beginning at the top and working your way down while making a single layer of yarn. Continue until you get to the base of the cone. Add another small dot of glue at the bottom and wrap yarn over it. Carry the yarn to the inside of the cone and secure with more glue or a piece of tape. Cut.  Decorate your wee tree with glee!
