Yarn Wrapped Winter Trees

I wanted to try something sweet to add to my paper Christmas village this holiday season, so I created a few yarn wrapped winter trees. These trees feature styrofoam cones that are wrapped with teal and white yarn. This craft is easy to create with a few simple steps.

Yarn Wrapped Winter Trees:

Step 1: Start from the bottom of the cone and hot glue the first 1/4" strand of yarn to the very bottom edge of the cone. Then wrap the cone tightly with the yarn until you reach the height on the cone you prefer (I wanted snow-topped trees so I left the top without the teal thread). Wrap tightly making sure no gaps are showing, but not so tight that you stretch the yarn too thin.

Step 2: Repeat these steps using white yard for the top of the tree. Let the glue cool at the top and then trim the yarn as close to the top of the tree as possible.

You can switch up colors to get the exact color of holiday trees you want.

This craft is something you do with kids IF you start the hot glue sections yourself. Do NOT burn yourself or let your kids touch the hot surface of glue until it's completely cool.
