Hi, everyone! I’m Jenn, and I blog over at Endlessly Inspired. I am thrilled to pieces to be here sharing this gorgeous yarn Christmas tree decor wrapped with all of you. Many thanks to Amy for the invitation to be a part of this fun series!
These trees are just too much fun. I love, love, love how you have become. Have you ever an idea in your head, and then you try it and it looks even better than you expected? I don't know, me too!! But it has this time!
yarn Christmas tree

Styrofoam cone
plastic wrap
sponge paint brush

The key to the whole process is the yarn. Originally, I had planned to, only with white yarn and then with glitter-Mod-hodgepodge, make it sparkle. Then I saw this awesome yarn at Michaels. It’s Payette called by Loops & Threads.
It’s got a bit glitter in it and the small, iridescent sequins every few inches. It’s so beautiful and glittery, I just love it. If I only I had any talent at all to knit or crochet . . .
Start by covering your Styrofoam cone in plastic wrap. If your doesn’t have a point on the top, a little bit of parchment roll paper or cardboard into a cone shape and glue it to the top of the cone before you cover it in plastic.
Tie a knot in the end of your yarn and attach it to the bottom of the cone with a pen. With your sponge brush, paint a thick layer of Mod smorgasbord of all your cone {warning: this is a messy project!!}. Then, begin to wrap your cone with the yarn.
There’s really no rhyme or reason to it, they just want to ensure only that it’s all overlapped and there’t no empty spots. I have about half a skein of the yarn, so I’d guess about 100 yards for my large Styrofoam cone.
Every few levels, you will be sure to check out more Mod-hodgepodge. You want the yarn to be fully saturated, to ensure that it stands upright, if you’re all done.
Once your cone is completely wrapped, let it dry for several hours, or overnight. It’s completely dry, very carefully slide the yarn from the cone.
can remain in the inside of the yarn, that's fine. Just gently peel them all the way. If you find there are all the soft or weak points in your structure, you can just paint on some more Mod smorgasbord and allow to dry.
That’s all there is to it! If your tree is with difficulty stand upright, you can always use things to help it with plastic bags or tissue paper to figure it out.
