A while back I was contacted by the good people at Lion Brand Yarns.
After seeing my Yarn Wreath, they were wonderful enough to send me a box of yarns to play around with this Christmas.
The yarns are absolutely beautiful and even though I craft with them … it almost makes me want to pick up knitting needles again.
I have several projects I want to complete with these (time permitting), but this time I’m doing yarn trees.
I used 3 different sized Styrofoam cones and some white craft glue.
Apply some glue to your tree and spiral the yarn of your choice into different size spirals, then apply them to the glue.
I didn’t paint the Styrofoam green because I wanted the green spirals to be noticeable against a background. I believe a green background would have made the spirals less distinct.
I did two in a mixture of greens and one completely in red. Again I left the background white so the swirls would show up better. I wrapped some of the eyelash yarn around the bottoms.
I suppose you add anything you wanted, a star topper, some garland or ornaments, but I chose to keep mine simple.
And a big Thank You to Lion Brand Yarn!
