DIY Yarn Christmas Trees - Cardboard Box Upcycle
We’re going to show you how to take those shipping boxes you don’t know what to do with and turn them into festive trees!
With a craft knife & ruler, cut out a triangle shape for a tree. Cut out a trunk if you’re feeling fancy.
1
On the back, mark out holes where the yarn will thread through. Tip: Plan Ahead! Map out the yarn pattern or design on a piece of paper first.
2
Use a nail to poke out the marked holes. Flip the tree over and push the nail all the way through.
3
Cut a long piece of yarn and tie a double knot at the end of it. Thread through a large needle to easily go through the holes.
4
Thread the needle through the holes and“embroider” the design.
5
When finished, tie off the yarn on the back side of the tree.
6
Add a snowy detail with white yarn.
7
Make a stand by hot gluing a scrap piece of cardboard to the back center of the tree.
8
Make these as big or small as you want! Change up the color of the yarn to match your decor! Cat approved. Meowy Christmas!
