Yarn Tassel Christmas Trees

Happy Holidays my awesome friends! Yep...It's official.  The Christmas boxes are down and ready to decorate for this weekend.  I am all in...Christmas is HERE.
So clearly...you will see it looking like Christmas around here for awhile.  
I am giddy with excitement. :)

I absolutely love how many variations of Christmas trees there are during the holidays.  And I have this complete love with working with yarn as many of you know.  So I came up with these pretty yarn trees that look fabulous because instead of wrapping them with the yarn, I used yarn tassels to create the look of layers of branches.  I love them so much!



You can use hot glue but I decided to use straight pins to pin each tassel to a the Styrofoam cone starting at the bottom and working my way up. Just push the pin through the knot to attach.
When you get to the top of the tree, trim the top loops of the tassels so they stick straight up.  
That's it. 
 Enjoy your pretty yarn tassel trees.

You can use different variations of green yarn to create interest in a pretty vignette.
If you make some, I would love to see yours.

xoxo to each of you precious friends!

  7. These are so lovely, like others have said the colours are great, they have a sort of Muppet's/sesame st quality about them (and I mean that in a good way!) These are the trees Elmo should have!
    They would be a great way to stash bust my wool collection, maybe multicoloured.
