This is seriously one of the easiest DIYs I've ever done, and I can't get over how amazing they turned out!
- Cardboard or Styrofoam cone
- Glue gun
Put a dot of hot glue on the base of the cone.
Attach the yarn.
For the first wrap of yarn only I usually add a few more dots of hot glue to the base of the cone to secure the yarn.
Continue to wrap cone with yarn.
For the candy cane tree, I did six rings of yarn per color. For the green and red one I eyeballed about two inches per layer.
Cut yarn. Secure it with another drop of hot glue. Add another dot of hot glue next to where you ended the last color. Attach the new color and keep going.
I found the cardboard cones to be a little easier to use than the Styrofoam cones because the yarn can stick to the Styrofoam when you're working with it.
I used these yarn trees to style my Cookies and Cocoa dessert table. I thought they added a lot of warmth and color. Don't ya think?
I love ombre. So when I thought about making something easy and pretty to decorate my daughter's room, I knew I wanted pink (for her) and ombre (for me).
I used yarn in 3 different shade of pink to give me my ombre effect, these Martha Stewart embellishments, and a wooden letter "L "(for Lainey) I found at Michael's.
I only applied glue to the backside, the top, and bottom of the letter. I would glue about three inches, then start wrapping, then add more glue as I moved up. I left the ends of the yarn long until the whole thing had dried. Then I trimmed them.
I added my embellishments, which have sticky tape on the back, and I was done!
The whole thing probably took about an hour and the longest part was waiting for the glue to dry.
I'm going to lean this up against her window on her dresser to add a little warmth and "girly" sweetness to her room. But how great would this look as decoration at a baby shower!
I found this tutorial on Inside My Hideaway and I just love the way the stripes look on the bottle. Isn't it cool how something so simple can be so pretty? And wouldn't this look great as part of a centerpiece or on a mantle?
Here it is filled with beaded flowers. Just lovely!

Jo-Anna from A Pretty Life in the Suburbs makes some beautiful crafts. I love this fall wreath she created with chunky yarn, felt, and an old sweater.
How wonderful would this look at your Thanksgiving celebration or even decorating your front door. It's so warm and cozy and the little pinwheel flowers are just too sweet.
Check out this simple tutorial to make your own. Thank you, Jo-Anna!
