Here is another fun Christmas craft that is fun to do as a family. Enjoy!

These yarn trees are a fun and easy ornament craft to make. We used sticks we found in our yard, but if you don’t have easy access to sticks, you can always use popsicle sticks. I love to be able to substitute in crafts – and also not spend a lot of money.

Seeing you might have some days off from school, why not do a last minute craft? Yarn trees are fun. Can I twist your arm? Any day is a great day to craft!

yarn trees with sticks


  • Sticks (you can gather them from your yard or use popsicle sticks)
  • Green yarn (or other colors)
  • Mini pom poms, sequins, etc for decoration
  • Small stars
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Ribbon
  • Tacky glue

  1. Find sticks and break them into different lengths. You want 2 of them matching, and a third a little shorter. You will also need a short piece for the trunk. (If using popsicle sticks, break the 3rd stick into 2 pieces that are approximately ⅔ and ⅓  or ¾ and ¼ of the stick. The short piece is for the trunk.)
  2. Using hot glue, make a triangle.
  3. Cut a long length of yarn and wrap it around the triangle in different lengths. You will want to attach the beginning and the end of the yarn with hot glue. 
  4. Decorate the tree with mini pom poms and a star on top of the tree. Attach with tacky glue.
  5. Using hot glue, attach the trunk to the bottom of the tree.
  6. Attach a ribbon for hanging. You can either tie it on or use hot glue.

I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas and can find joy in the season.
