How to Make DIY Yarn Pompom Trees
Step 1: Gather Supplies

- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Step 2: Make yarn pom poms, using this tutorial.
You can make different sizes of pompoms by varying how many times you wrap the yarn around your fingers.
Wrap more times for a large pompom, and less for a smaller pompom.
Step 3: Trim the pompoms into cone shapes with scissors.
Step 4: Cut wine corks into smaller pieces (halves or possibly thirds if you can).
These will be the tree trunks of your yarn Christmas trees!
Step 5: Hot glue a piece of cork to the bottom of each pompom.
Flip the tree upside down as you hold the cork in place, so the glue can drip into the pompom as it dries.
Repeat with all sizes of your yarn pompoms!
