yarn tree christmas craft for kids


  • Yarn of any color.  (Hint–The larger the weave of the yarn, the easier it will be to work with.  Don’t choose a super thin yarn for young kids.  They’ll be wrapping forever, and the glue will make a big mess!)
  • Foam craft cone (I always buy them at craft stores with a 40-50% off coupon.)
  • Craft glue
  • Straight pins with colored tops
  • Beads and buttons

  1. Begin at the bottom of the cone by drawing a bead of glue across the bottom edge of the cone.
  2. Press yarn into the glue, and continue wrapping it completely around the bottom of the cone.  
  3. Continue to add more glue as you go, making a continuous “snake” of yarn around the entire cone.
  4. When you reach the top of the cone, continue gluing and wrapping until your reach the top center–making a neat coil across the top.
  5. Decorate by attaching buttons and beads with decorative straight pins.  My girls were pretty tame with their decorations.  The possibilities are endless.
