Yarn Christmas trees are super easy and fun to make, and they can be made in many different ways.
Today, we will use styrofoam cones again as the base for our trees, but we will wrap them with chunky yarn!
The results are beautiful DIY yarn Christmas trees, using fun chunky yarn that can be whipped together in minutes!
Here’s how to make them!
How to Make DIY Chunky Yarn-Wrapped Styrofoam Trees
Step 1. Gather Supplies
Step 2. Beginning at the base of a styrofoam cone, hot glue yarn around it.
Step 3. Continue hot gluing and wrapping the yarn around the cone as you move up toward the top.
Keep the yarn close together as you wrap it so you can’t see the cone underneath.
Step 4. When you get close to the top, cut the yarn, and glue the end of the yarn tail down into the top of the tree.
That’s it! Your chunky yarn tree is finished!
You can do the same process with any type of chunky yarn, like the green yarn skein in the photos below.
Hot glue the yarn around the styrofoam cone from the base to the top, wrapping the yarn tightly so you minimize gaps.
Tuck and glue the yarn end into the top of the tree when you’re finished and you’re done!
Yarn Christmas trees can be made using any type of string or yarn you want, and any size styrofoam cone or paper cone you choose.
You can make a batch with trees of varying sizes and colors to create a beautiful winter scene for your mantel or tablescape!
