For my winter shelf I thought a tree covered in snow would be just what it needed. At first I was going to add snowflakes but once I had the yarn around my “tree” I thought it was perfect – I like the simplicity of this project.
This project took me less than 15 minutes. I could have bought a white Styrofoam cone but I opted for the green one – ya know because trees are green and I wanted a little bit of the green to peak through. However, if I was to do this again I would probably go with the white Styrofoam cone because this green one is a bit messy to work with.
|All you need is a foam/styrofoam cone, yarn and pins.|
|At the base of your cone attach the yarn with a pin.|
|Go around the entire bottom putting pins every inch and a half or so. This creates your bottom layer and keeps your yarn in place.|
|You only need pins for the bottom and top layer. Begin wrapping the yarn around the cone until you get to the top.|
|At the top you will need to swirl the yarn around using a pin every so often to hold it in place. At first I was worried you would be able to see the pins but once it was up and on my shelf you really couldn’t see any of the pins.|
|I love how my little winter tree turned out and love how well it goes with everything else on my shelf.|
