Our easy to follow steps are …
Gather Supplies for Make Yarn Wrapped Christmas Trees
Yarn Laine Soft & Shiny in Parsley #35
3 twigs for the tree trunks
1 regular size glue stick
Yarn Laine (100 percent acrylic) about $3.97 at Michaels. But is often on sale. We were more interested in finding the right color of yarn. And really liked the green parsley #35 color. Works very well in a rustic theme decor.
Twigs for the Christmas Tree trunks were found in the woods during our daily walks. So, lucky us – no cost for this project.
Cardboard and other supplies we had on hand.
2. Make a Template of the Three Trees
Cut out of paper (we used notebook paper) the size of trees that you need for your decor project. Use the paper trees as a guide to trace the tree image onto the cardboard.
Then cut the tree shape out of the cardboard. We create three different sizes of trees. A trio of trees.
3. Glue Yarn Laine Soft & Shiny to Cardboard
Glue the Soft and Shiny yarn to the cardboard tree. Begin at the base of the cardboard tree. Work from the bottom to the top of the tree. Continue to wrap the cardboard tree so that the cardboard is completely covered.
4. Add Twig to the Tree as a Trunk
After the second wrapping of yarn, glue the twig or trunk to the bottom of the tree. Continue wrapping the yarn around the cardboard and twig. The twig on the cardboard tree should be completely covered with yarn. Once the cardboard is completely covered with yarn (about three wrappings) with the yarn at bottom of the tree – cut the yarn with an extra two inches. Spread glue around the twig or tree trunk where it meets with the yarn near the bottom of the tree. Wrap the cut yarn piece around the tree trunk. Tuck any remaining yarn between the yarn and the cardboard piece.
