Twine Wrapped Christmas Trees

|

It is Christmas in July and this week I am sharing some fun DIY projects. One of my favorites are these Twine Wrapped Christmas Trees.

Many years ago, I learn that it is best to get a head start on Christmas. I love crafts around the holidays. With our busy schedules of family, shopping, baking, and gift wrapping, we tend to run out of time. It is why I like to do my some projects in the summer.

This project is fun and easy!

The best part of the project, it takes very little time to complete.

Add some hot glue or tacky glue around the rim of the candle stick holder. Add the cone on top of it. Try to make sure you center the candle stick holder under the cone. You do not want it to topple over.

The fun part is adding some embellishments. I kept this tree very simple. Sweet pom-pom trim was added around the bottom of the cone.

Hot Glue to the jewel topper and push it down on top of the cone. You will need to hold the tree topper for a few minutes. The glue will cool and the tree topper will stand by itself.

I love the two tone look of this Twine Christmas Tree. Remember you can substitute yarn lieu of jute for another beautiful DIY Tabletop Christmas Tree idea.

You can use miniature jingle bells, rhinestones or pearls as embellishments to your tree. Here I am using mini jingle bells.

For the tree topper, you can use anything from jeweled buttons, vintage brooches, vintage earring, star, a pom-pom or medium size jingle bell..
