I love chunky yarn! If your tired of burlap but you love texture in your decorating, adding a wrap of chunky yarn to your Christmas decor will definitely accomplish this goal! And now that I finally completed this project I wish I had more trees to decorate with now!
Supplies I Used
- Mini Christmas tree of your choice
- Chunky yarn: I found mine at Hobby Lobby when it was on sale.
- Foam sheets: I picked white
- Hot glue and glue gun

decorating our tree with chunky yarn
This project is so simple, yet adds a elegant and textured touch to Christmas decor!
All you need is a warmed up glue gun and a glue stick or two.
I removed the common burlap wrap and the plastic wrap that is underneath.
This exposes a concrete like surface.
Since the bottom is exposed, this area is a little rough and it’s good time to add a piece of foam sheet.
Grab a pen or pencil and place the tree base on the foam sheet, trace around it, cut and then hot glue this onto the bottom.
Adding our chunky yarn
Starting from the bottom, I add a drop of hot glue and the end of the yarn.
Once this is cured, I start adding more glue across the bottom and applying the yarn as I go.
When the bottom is wrapped I work my way up, glueing and wrapping yarn as I go.
I continue this pattern even at the top and work my way, wrapping the yarn so the top of the concrete is covered also.
That is it, that is how simple this craft is!
Oh before I forget!
