I’ve been crafting a lot with yarn this season, and I had this beautiful, chunky yarn left over from my Pom Pom Wreath. I didn’t care for the pom poms I made with this yarn, but I love these DIY, Chunky Yarn Trees. Because the yarn is so thick, you’ll whip up these Yarn Cones in a jiffy. Paired together, the Pom Pom Wreath and Chunky Yarn Trees make a beautiful Christmas vignette. The colors and textures are so soft and understated, and the rusty stars and jingle bells add a rustic element. I may display them all winter long!
To make Chunky Yarn Trees, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam, 9” x 4”, 9” x 5” and 8” x 4” cones (or other sizes of your choice)
- Chunky yarn*
- Metal stars with rust finish, 3*
- Thick, white craft glue
- Tools needed: Scissors; straight pins
*I found my stars and yarn at Hobby Lobby.
To make Chunky Yarn Trees:
1. Pin and glue the end of the yarn to the base of the cone. Continue wrapping the cone in yarn, spot gluing as you go. If needed, use straight pins to hold the yarn in place while the glue dries.
2. Spread glue on flat top, wind yarn around top, and trim off excess yarn.
3. Glue stars to tops of trees.
I have a few more yarn crafts for you, including these Yarn Ball Ornaments.
Keep wrapping, and you’ll enough yarn balls to make a Yarn Ball Christmas Wreath.
A while back, Kathleen George shared with us her Christmas Yarn Wreath.
Do you have a yarn stash? Or plans to make a few Christmas yarn crafts? I’m kicking around a few more ideas that I hope to share soon . . .
P.S. I don’t want to rush the season, and I’ll have a new Halloween craft next week!
