Yarn Wrapped Valentine's Tree - Pinterest Success #12


One of the projects I was looking forward to making for the holidays was a yarn wrapped Christmas tree. I decided at a certain point, that my decorations were complete and would just keep it in mind for next year.

As I was going through my Pinterest boards, looking for Valentine's inspiration, it occurred to me that I could change the tree on this pin, from a Christmas tree into a Valentine's tree. While at Michaels, I found some thick yarn in a pretty pink shade, as well as some felt flowers, in shades of red and some pretty patterned hearts. ( If desired, this project could be adapted, using items found at the dollar store, for a lower cost )

This project was very easy and I was able to complete it in less than an hour. The steps are as follows:

{Step 1 - place a small drop of glue at bottom of styrofoam tree form and attach beginning of yarn strand}. {Step 2 - start to wrap yarn tightly around tree form making sure to keep rows close together as possible}. {Step 3 - finish wrapping at the top and add drop of glue to hold yarn, as you cleanly finish the top of tree}. {Step 4 - add decorations, such as hearts and flowers, with glue or pins}. {Step 5 - tie an additional strand of yarn around the top of tree, if desired}.

The yarn gives it the natural feel, that I like, and I have just the spot in mind for this simple, yet sweet, Valentine's tree.

Happy Wednesday!
