DIY White Yarn Christmas Tree Decorations

DIY White Yarn Christmas Decorations - sixtimemommy.com

Although I do really love decorating for Christmas I don’t always love spending the extra money on decorations. Over the years I’ve collected plenty, however moving and such has caused a lot of the stuff to go missing, get broken or need to be thrown out for whatever reason.

Although I did go on a nice shopping spree at Canadian Tire and get a load of the CANVAS collection for my tree and dining needs over the holidays I didn’t get very many decorations for my living room, or the rest of my house.

So I’ve decided making them would be a much easier, cheaper and better option. I have so much around my house I didn’t even realize could be used for decorations, but re-purposing things I already own is one of my favorite things to do!

Today I’m sharing White Yarn Christmas Tree Decorations!

materialMaterials Needed:

  • 5″ foam cones (located in the floral area at major retailers)
  • white yarn
  • hot glue gun
  • medium pom-poms
  • small pom-poms

Directions:

  1. Apply a small dollop of hot glue on the bottom of one of the foam cones. Place one end of the white yarn on the hot glue and then gently wrap it around the cone all the way to the top (see photos). Don’t worry about getting the yarn too close because you will wrap it back down the cone once you get to the top filling in the gaps.
  2. Once the cone is wrapped top to bottom, place another small dollop of hot glue at the base to hold the yarn and snip the excess.
  3. Take a few of the medium pom-poms and give them each a dollop of hot glue and place at the top of the cone.
  4. Use the small pom-poms to decorate the tree by each a small dollop of hot glue and placing them on the tree as ornaments.
  5. Repeat with the desired amount of cones.

*The foam cones come in a variety of sizes so have fun with it and make a few different size trees!

    Oh my, these are so simple and affordable, and too cute! I think I’d make a mess of the ornaments, but I’m wondering if I could use this as a sewing pin holder and make the pins the ornaments? Thanks for the idea!

    What a great idea. I bet that would look great to use old string or twine to give it a more antique feel as well. Also a neat craft to do with kids.

    There is a German craft store that I’ve been itching to get into, so I think I’m going to head in next week to get the yarn to make these adorable trees with my daughter The Artist. These are so cute! I’m not crafty by any stretch of the imagination, but I think, I hope, I can make these. I’m going to try!

  • Reply Christina Aliperti December 12, 2015 at 11:42 pm

    We have a little table that we keep the mail on in the hallway and these would be so cute to decorate for the holidays. I bet my nieces would love to help me make these.
