As soon as I saw the “hedge green” colorway in the Bernat Blanket-EZ Yarn, I knew it was perfect for a yarn Christmas Tree Craft! I love how all the soft hues of green blend together to create dimension and interest… just like a real tree!
This yarn Christmas Tree craft is a simple one, requiring no sewing or crocheting or knitting skills! All you need is pre-looped yarn, a foam cone, sewing pins and scissors!
My first attempt at this craft was to wrap the yarn around the cone and chain the loops together for a braided look. It was cute, but a little too plain. On my next attempt, I wrapped the yarn around, but left the loops in tact. This was cute, but a little too frumpy and lumpy in my opinion. Finally, I decided to wrap it, but snip the ends of all the loops, to give it a more “branched” look. Jackpot!
The result was just enough softness to create a bit of whimsy, but enough texture and depth of color to add a realistic touch. Have some fun with different sizes of cones and other colors of yarn! Bernat Blanket-EZ also comes in full white, as well as some neutral blends.
