yarn-wrapped christmas tree

This project is intended for kids 4+. Make a chipboard cone and wrap it with yarn to add to your Christmas décor; then, use basic craft items to embellish your tree!
Step 1

First, click here to download and print the template. Cut it out along the solid line.

Step 2

Trace the shape onto a piece of chipboard and cut it out. Fold the side where the dotted line is indicated on the template.

Step 3

ADULT: Run a line of hot glue down the side where the dotted line is indicated on the template, then roll the chipboard into a cone. Hold the shape until the hot glue sets. Now, run a line of hot glue over the flap and fold it over. Carefully hold it in place for a few minutes while the glue sets.

Step 4

Brush a little craft glue at the top of the cone. Place the yarn end into the wet glue and let it set for a few minutes. Now, wrap your cone with yarn.
TIP: Add brushes of glue as you wrap to help secure the yarn in place. Let dry.

Step 5

Glue basic craft items to your tree, such as coordinating yarn, bells, sequin and sparkle pipe cleaners, to embellish. Let dry.
