I discovered several interesting Christmas Tree craft ideas on Pinterest. Two of my favorite ideas used yarn to decorate foam bases. Living in Germany, I have discovered a great lack of craft and hobby stores – most people order supplies online. So I had to be inventive since I had no foam core, plastic, or cardboard shaped trees to start with. I used cardstock to form the base for the trees. I imagine this project would have been a touch easier using something more solid as the base. Nevertheless, I powered through and ended up with 3 festive trees to add a touch of Christmas to my apartment.
Drawing, cutting, and making the cardstock bases
I added glue in small sections as I wrapped the yarn around the base
The spiral design left me with blank spaces, so I filled them in with pearls
I added a sparkly snowflake to the top of each as the final touch
