I hope you had a relaxing weekend and stuffed your bellies! I got a ton done
around here, including finishing up a really cute yarn Christmas craft. I
couldn’t wait to show you because I just think these are the cutest.
I wanted some new holiday decor for our basement but didn’t want to spend a
ton of money — I came up with this idea and they turned out better than I
imagined. I was going to use basic yarn on Styrofoam cones, but wanted a
Enter this finger knit yarn I’ve had forever — for the blanket I still
haven’t made yet, ha!:
It is SO so soft and fluffy and I had an idea — I wondered how it would work
wound around the cones instead of regular yarn. Well, I’ll tell you…it
worked ADORABLE. 😁

I started with basic craft foam forms:
And used my hot glue to attach the yard at the base first:
I started about an inch from the bottom because this yarn drapes so
I went up about 3/4 to an inch each pass around the cone:
Just do a bead of hot glue and then lightly press the top portion of the yarn
along the glue.
TV. They go together fast:
That’s it! I did three different sizes — one was about six inches, one was
11 inches and the final was about 17 inches but I cut those two down a bit:
It’s like a snowy, fluffy forest! 🙂 I think they are the cutest. You
don’t even have to do anything to cover the white foam — it disappears
behind the yarn:
I giggled every time I finished one. They are adorable and SO easy and
inexpensive! The foam products are often on sale, or you can use a coupon at
one of the craft stores.
fairy lights I showed you here
for a bit of twinkle:
You can also have them glow from “inside” by running those tiny lights
under the yarn around the tree:
And if you want a pop of color you could stick in red beads here and there
in the yarn to look like berries.
I wanted something simple but fun on this table in our basement and these
were perfect. I went super cozy and a bit rustic down there so they fit
yarn as well for a mixed white and green forest. I used the Bernat brand
finger knit yarn (here are all the colors they offer!) but the cream seems hard to find right now. This
one looks identical, you just don’t get as much.
