DIY Twine Wrapped Christmas Trees

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Today I want to share with you how to create Twine Wrapped Christmas Trees. This is a super easy and affordable Christmas craft that you all must try! So let's get on with it, shall we?!

You will need Baker's Twine or yarn (either one will do), cardboard or cardstock, and a hot glue gun. I used Baker's Twine since it's what I had on hand and I used empty cereal boxes and Kraft paper cardstock to make my trees.

First you need to roll your cardboard or cardstock into cone like tree shapes. Use the hot glue gun to hold them together. I cut my cardstock into different sizes so I could get a variety of tree heights. They don't need to look good on the outside since you'll be covering them. Just make sure the shape is what you want.

Next start wrapping your twine or yarn around the bottom of the tree. Use the hot glue gun every so often as needed to secure it. I did a dot of glue about every 1/4 inches. Don't worry about getting every little spot covered on the way up the tree. 

Once you get to the top start working your way back down and fill in the empty spaces as you go. Once you get back to the base of the tree make sure you do a couple more dots of hot glue to secure the bottom strands. 

And that's it! This is something that you can do even if you think you aren't crafty. What's even better is that this could be used longer than just during the Christmas season. Make your trees in white, silver, and blues and display them all winter long!
