O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

9 Comments


Yesterday, I sat at my Christmas craft station a.k.a. the kitchen table, and started my crafts for the mantle.  It is all about the mantle for me this year.

I made Christmas trees!!!!!!!  While I was making said trees, I realized that I have yet to make a winter wreath, and I have lost my glue gun.  I guess I will have to turn in my crafting card.

Anwhoo, after finding all sorts of ideas on Pinterest, I went with the yarn trees.  Being a knitter, I have plenty of yarn, which saved me some $$$$.

This is how it all went down.

I bought some styrofoam cones from the floral section of Hobby Lobby, and the yarn is from Walmart.  The prices of the cones were based on their size.  The smaller one shown here came in a package of two for $4.47.   I then started to wrap the yarn around the cone.  I started at the top, and used a stick pin to hold the yarn in place.  The texture of the cone allowed the yarn to stick to it.

As you can see by the pic, you just keep wrapping the yarn around and around, and around.

At the bottom of the cone, I used stick pins again to hold the yarn in place.  They look like little ornaments.  I have not decided yet if I will add anything to the top.  I like it flat, and you really will not be able to see it when it is on the mantle.

I also made a fabric tree.  Same concept, but you have to fold the fabric in places since it is flat and you are working with a round surface.

Here they are!  I love them.

Ignore the button ball.  That is for tomorrow, along with some fun garland I am making.

While Christmas crafting, I believe that Christmas music should be playing in the background.

Here is a playlist I put together.

We watched The Polar Express last night.  It is my second favorite Christmas movie.  My first comes on tonight.

I know there will be a time when my girls no longer believe in Santa, but I always hope they think Christmas is the most magical time of the year.  Just like their seriously sassy mama.

  3. These are very fun! I’ve dropped the “crafting” ball this year, so I’m living vicariously through other bloggers. :)

  4. The button ball is seriously adorable, can’t wait for tomorrow!
