Yarn Bombed Christmas Tree

Yarn Bombed Christmas Tree

We yarn bombed our Christ­mas tree! It took every tiny elf in our house (the chil­dren), but we did it. Red Heart sent us five huge boxes of yarn and we went crazy. We spun, wound, draped, and totally bombed the tree with sixty sec­ond pom poms.

Every­one had a total blast and it just may be our favorite tree ever. You and your lit­tle ones can make one, too!

Yarn Bombed Christmas Tree

Step 1
Head over to your local craft store and pick out a vari­ety of Red Heart yarn in your favorite col­ors. Don’t be shy – you’ll need quite a bit. Thank­fully, Red Heart yarn is super affordable :)

Once you’ve selected the yarn that you want to use, pull every­one together, grab a branch, and start wind­ing! Don’t worry if nee­dles stick out here and there, just keep wind­ing and find­ing your own style. This is a no fail project – every branch will be a unique lit­tle work of art with it’s own personality.

Step 2
Your tree will be look­ing pretty good by now, but it’s still miss­ing one key ingre­di­ent… Pom-poms! You’ll need quite a few to fill the tree, but this will not take as long as you think. Sim­ply fol­low our sixty sec­ond giant pom-pom tuto­r­ial and you’ll have them ready in no time at all.

Again, there’s no right or wrong way to do this. Just let the kids go for it and have some fun!

Step Three
Step back and mar­vel at the mas­ter­piece you and your fam­ily cre­ated together. Now you all share a won­der­ful mem­ory that will last a lifetime.

Have a merry, fun-filled, crafty & col­or­ful Christmas!

    Haha! I lit­er­ally laughed out loud when I saw this crazy tree! It looks so joy­ful and I can hear all the glee­ful laugh­ter I imag­ine accom­pa­nied the dec­o­rat­ing of it. Beau­ti­fully done and yes, quite a mas­ter­piece of indi­vid­ual branches of art­work! Won­der­ful! :D

    I love it and first saw this on Pin­ter­est. You all did a won­der­ful job. I like how it has an ombra effect of red fad­ing to white. Beautiful.
