Retrofabulous Yarn Wrapped Tabletop Christmas Trees

Monday, November 19, 2012

Bring on the holidays!  Hooray!  I'm so excited for year two of Retrofabulous Christmas Craftabration at Studio Madge!  These Yarn Wrapped Tabletop Christmas Trees are vintage inspired, with a clean modern twist, which is the heart of all things retrofabulous.  The cones are available for a song at Michaels as is this lovely Dew Drops yarn. Aleene's adhesives make this project a breeze to create.  You can make a whole forest of these trees very inexpensively and quickly yet, they look so rich and opulent.  This technique works well with papier mache or cardboard Christmas balls too. You don't need to spend a fortune to make your home cozy and chic for the holidays.  And yes, it's obvious that my obsession with pom poms (or pom pons if you will) has not faded.  Ho ho ho!


1 large 13" tall cardboard papier mache cone
2 smaller 10.5" tall cardboard papier mache cones
3 skeins Dew Drops yarn in silver, taupe and electric blue
Aleene's glue sticks 
Aleene's Fabric Fusion adhesive or Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue

Clover pom pom maker (medium sized 2" pom poms work best with these cones)
Aleene's glue gun

Cut yarn wraps, tie pom pom center while still on tool with a knotted length of yarn, cut off tails.
