Christmas Cones (used to be the No Knit Yarn Wreath)
A few different versions of what I'm calling Christmas Tree Cones! The first was inspired from the original wreath idea. I started with these supplies:
Yarn (cheapest I could find - I think they were $1 each)
The How To is pretty straight forward - just wrap the cones with sections of yarn, hot gluing along the way to secure.
- Don't unwrap the plastic over wrap from the cone. It's easier to work with this way.
- Start at the top working your way down.
- Glue the yarn to the cone all the way around the first loop to create a base. Then, as your wrapping more and more, you don't have to be too exact. Just wrap yarn around, then slide it up to touch the previous loop. I found this easier than to try and wrap the yarn in rows perfectly next to one another.
Voila! Completed red and white tree! Just not sure of the topper. What's your favorite look?
Made a green one too with the yarn, but didn't get as exact on the wrapping and added a few bits of bling too for a totally different look.
Hot glue tip: Use your blow-drier to melt away all those little annoying strings of glue that are virtually impossible to avoid with hot glue projects! Doing this also helped to ruffle the "leaves" on the tree.
For just a few bucks you can make all sorts of cute Christmas decor for your home!
