Christmas Cone Tree Decorating Idea With Fizzle Yarn

Christmas Cone Tree Decorating Idea With Fizzle Yarn

I have a very easy and frugal Christmas cone tree decoration idea that uses a Styrofoam cone, yarn, beads, ribbon, and a hot glue gun!
They took me about 15 mintues each to make and are great to add to the mantle or side table! I personally have my Christmas cone trees behind my nativity scene near my Christmas tree.

Materials needed to make your own Christmas Cone decorated with tizzy yarn:

  • Styrofoam cone – I have them ranging from 6-12″ in size.  I also recommend getting white – if you get green it will show through a bit.
  • I used white tizzy yarn.  Turns out since I made this, that kind of yarn has been voluntary recalled.  *eye roll*  So – one alternative I found is this white fizzle yarn.  I like this yarn because it gives it texture like a snowy covered evergreen tree!
  • Miscellaneous tree decorations such as gold bead garland, silver beads, red ribbon, felt poinsettias, bows, or whatever else you have to use to decorate your cone tree.
  • hot glue gun

I do recommend gluing it every few rows as you go up the cone.

Now it’s time to decorate – there are endless possibilities to decorate your trees.  You can see the 3 different ways I decorated mine.  Use hot glue and wrap around some ribbon or gold bead garland.  Glue on individual beads for ornaments and top it with a bow, star, or even a poinsettia!

Add some evergreen or pine cones around the base, and perhaps add your Christmas Nativity scene in the front as I do!
