Pom-Pom Yarn Christmas Trees

By: Red Heart Design Team

Note: To make wrapping easier, cut individual strands of yarn in 10 yard lengths. As each strand is added, pin last pompom of previous strand and first pompom of new strand securely to cone. Small Tree Attach one strand of A and B to bottom edge of cone with one pin each, so that the first pompom of each strand are next to each other. Wrap strand around cone pinning the center of the strand to the bottom edge to hide the foam. Continue attaching and wrapping strands, pinning pompoms as needed to cover strands from previous rows, and allowing the 2 colors to start a spiral pattern around the cone. You may have to pull the yarn a little tighter in some places, or let it fall slack to keep the spiral pattern. Just before reaching the top of the cone, hold the strands between the pompoms toward the top, covering the strand in the previous row with the pompoms. Gather the extra strands on top of the cone and pin the last pompom of A and B on top of the strands to cover. Medium and Large Trees Beginning at the top of the cone, and holding two strands together of the same color, pin pompoms to the top of the cone, covering it completely. Continue wrapping and pinning strands same as for small tree, holding the strand between the pompoms at the bottom of the cone. Just before reaching the base of the cone, pull strands a little tighter as necessary to create the best pompom coverage. Pin the center of the strand between pompoms along the edge of the base to hide the cone.

Trees measure: Small (4½" x 6¾"), Medium (4½" x 9½") and Large (4½" x 12½") Materials for 3 Christmas Trees: RED HEART® "Spark-a-DoodleTM": 1 ball each 9368 Shamrock A, and 9901 Reddy B. One each: 3" x 6", 3 7/8" x 9" and 3 7/8" x 11 7/8" Styrofoam®cones. 300 straight pins with small metal heads.
