DIY Christmas Craft: YARN TREES


What you need:
  • 3 Foam Trees ( Can be purchased at any hobby/craft store)
  • Yarn (obviously......)
  • Decorative ornament balls (.99 store has tons of cheap "decorative balls")
  • Hot Glue Gun (KEEP AWAY FROM THE TODDLERS!!!)
Directions
1. Wrap your trees with the yarn.
Start by putting a dab of hot glue on the foam to start your yarn and to keep it in place. I actually didn’t use anymore hot glue as I kept wrapping – it stayed in place perfectly. There is no science to it really, I just kept wrapping – I did not wrap the yarn perfectly as I kind of like the “messy” look of it compared to the perfect lines – plus that would take a bit longer :) Wrap the trees until your foam is completely covered (takes a couple of minutes) and end your yarn with another dab of hot glue.
2. Hot glue your ornaments.
3. Add a snowflake or ornament of your choice to the top.
