I love decorating for the holidays in fun and unique ways and I love using unexpected colors!  So this holiday season I am decorating my home with a few Christmas tree decorations and I am absolutely in love with this Cozy Yarn Tree Decor.  I love the softness and warmth that these decorations bring and they are so fun and simple to make too!  So gather a few supplies and enjoy creating this fun holiday decor!

I love how this Cozy Yarn Tree Decor is so simple to make and doesn’t take too long either!  It is a great craft to involve your older children in too if they are interested.  (My kids always want to help!)  Just be sure to use a low temp hot glue gun to protect you (or little ones) fingers!


Here is what you will need to create your own yarn trees:

  • StyroFoam Cones (3 sizes)
  • Yarn (3 different colors and styles)
  • Low Temp Hot Glue Gun


You will begin by tying a knot in the end of the yarn.  Glue the knot to the top center of your cone and then begin wrapping your yard around your foam cone.


You will wrap and wrap and wrap your yarn.  Every few rows I tacked my yarn down with a touch of hot glue just to ensure that it stays in place.


You can of course use any colors of yarn you prefer.  You can stick with traditional holiday colors or you can choose colors a bit more untraditional.  Either way you can’t go wrong with these beautiful cozy yarn trees for your holiday decor!


These cozy yarn trees are so simple to make and I just love how they look!  They are a great way to add softness and warmth to your holiday decor without a lot of money, or time
