Yarn Tree Christmas Craft for Kids

Can you believe it’s already December?  I’ve been cruising through the month trying to get everything done, and it just occurred to me that I haven’t done any shopping yet! We’ve been having so much fun Christmas crafting, that I’ve forgotten all about the shopping.  We just finished this fun yarn tree Christmas craft for kids.

Yarn Tree Christmas Craft for Kids {Have fun creating together, and then display your project every year!} Christmas Decor from OneCreativeMommy.com

When I started making my Knotted Yarn Christmas Tree decor, the kids wanted to get in on the action. It wasn’t too difficult to adapt the project into something a little more kid-friendly.

With a little yarn and glue, we created these fun trees in no time.  The fun part is that the kids can redecorate them every year.  Since the decorations are attached with pins, and not glue, they can be changed as often as the kids want.

I’m sharing the tutorial today as a guest post on Juggling Act Mama. Just click the image below to get started creating your own yarn Christmas trees.

The kids are going to love creating their own Christmas decor.  Mine are excited to display theirs in their rooms.

  4. I always have extra yarn left over from making scarfs. Great use of it instead of throwing it away!

  5. Great idea! I bought some of the styrofoam trees for craft projects for my son but wasn’t quite sure how we would use them. Now I need to get some yarn. Thank you for sharing.
