All you need are a few basic materials, an hour or so of time and the will to get your hands gooey and sticky!
Yarn (color of your choosing)
2 bottles of Elmer's Glue
1 Tablespoons Cornstarch
4 Tablespoons water
Different sheets of sturdy paper
Newspapers to cover your work area
A bowl to mix ingredients
All the materials. I rolled the sturdy pieces of paper into cone shapes. At the store, styrofoam cones were from 5.00-10.00 which just seemed too much to spend, so I rolled paper instead.
Cover your workspace with the newspapers and pour both bottles of glue into the bowl.
Pour the 4 tablespoons of water in and mix the water and glue together.
Measure out and mix in cornstarch.
Combine the ingredients together.
Cut off a large length of yarn and soak it in the glue mixture.
Cover each paper cone with the plastic wrap so that the glue-coated yarn won't stick to the paper.
Begin wrapping the yarn in a criss-cross fashion and as you go, pinch the yarn between your fingers to rid it of excess glue mixture.
Tuck the ends into the other strands of yarn when you have used up all the yarn.
Allow the yarn trees to dry 24 hours or until they no longer feel wet.
Remove the paper cones and then the plastic wrap. Oh and when you come over, please take some of the delicious white chocolate M&M's. They are so delicious, I am in danger of eating them all!
You can glue on little pearls or glittery ornaments to add a little extra pop.
Merry DIY Christmas! :)
