When I was a little girl, my teacher used yarn to make many of our classroom art projects. As a teacher, I did not make too many yarn crafts. However, we do make a simple yarn tree craft every year. It was so fun to do this project one week before the winter vacation!
Christmas tree craft supplies:
Paper or Styrofoam cone.
This is such a simple project, but it does take a few days to dry completely, so if you are making some, please plan ahead.
First print a paper tube: (If you are using Styrofoam, you can skip this step.
After printing out the tapered template, cut it out and roll it into shape.
Next, cut about two yards of yarn.
Now, pour the glue into the bottom of the plate.
Then, put the yarn into the glue.
Finally, start to wrap the cone with dipped yarn. It will be a bit messy, but the school glue is easy to wash, so have fun.
Wrap the yarn around the cone all the time, making sure to overlap the yarn. This will make the tree more stable. If needed, you can add more dipped yarn to the tree.
Once you are satisfied with your tree, place the cone on a plate with glue and let the yarn dry completely.
After a few days, carefully cut the cone from the yarn.
That's it! I hope this cute and simple yarn tree craft will inspire you to create your own cute yarn tree this holiday season!
