Today I’m sharing a craft a little outside of my usual. This Stuffed yarn wrapped Christmas tree is a bit too tricky for young children but is a craft I’ve always enjoyed making myself and wanted to share. This craft is perfect for making whilst snuggled up with a hot chocolate and a Christmas movie!

You will need

4 popsicle sticks
Yarn
Pom Poms
Gold card
Glue gun

Glue 3 of your sticks together in a triangle shape. Then, cut the fourth stick in half and glue one half to the bottom of your triangle to make the tree trunk.

Take one end of your yarn and tie it in a knot around your tree frame.

Now it’s time to start wrapping the yarn around your Christmas tree! You need to pull the yarn tight on the first loop. Don’t worry about the corners on the first trip around, they’re easier to place on the second lap and this prevents them from being too thick.

loop your string round a second time, this time including corners. to make the corners easier I usually wrap one side to the middle and then bring the other side in to meet it. you will need to wrap the string a little more loose this time to prevent it separating the first layer and creating a gap.

Do a third wrap around to even out your Christmas tree. Then, to secure your tree either thread the loose end under your previous loops or use a glue gun to secure it at the back.

To make the loop to hang your decoration; take a length of string or yarn and thread one end under the wrapped yarn at the top of your tree. Tie the two loose ends together.

Take a length of your green yarn. attach it to the tree by tying it on or by using a glue gun. Then repeatedly wrap the yarn around your triangle horizontally to create a cage for your pom poms, make sure the rows are close enough together that the pom poms won’t fall out. secure the loose end as before.

Stuff your tree with pom poms by squeezing them in through the cage. Cut out a card star and stick to the top of your tree. Finish off by hanging your fab new decoration!
