Yarn Trees

2:41 PM Friday, December 17, 2010

Most everyone knows that I have a "thing" for Ben Franklin Crafts. It has become an almost monthly visit for me and my friend Alli. We plan a night and it takes us an hour to get there and we shop for over and hour then we trek back home. I LOVE this store. They have the best ideas and the cutest crafts. When we went 2 weeks ago we saw these yarn trees. It was one of those moments where you fall in love instantly and you can't stop thinking about them until they are in your cart on your way to the register. We made them last night and had a blast doing it. All you do is buy your styrofoam cones in different sizes, your glittered (everything is better glittered) yarn and E6000 glue. Wrap and glue as you go and voila you have the cutest trees in the neighborhood! I didn't wrap the yarn as tight so you can see the styrofoam, but you can wrap the yarn tight and it looks really cute too.


  1. Those are way darling. Good idea!


  2. Those are really cute. So you got thicker yarn then. Is it a special kind or just the kind you picked? I"m loving all of your new posts.
