Handmade Christmas Tree Tutorial

Christmas Ball Tree Tutorial

Everything was purchased everything from Michael's but the dollar store usually has similar items.

Things you need:
  •  1 each - 2 x 5 in Styrofoam cone
  •  decorative balls on wires this project required 8 pieces 
  •  heavy duty nips or scissors
  •  top decoration

 Snip each ball off at the longest end possible, no worries you can always cut it shorter later if needed. The longer the stem the more secure it will be.

Begin pushing each ball into Styrofoam starting at the bottom. Fill the bottom rim all the way around, move up to the next layer/line and place a ball in between the two balls from the line below.

Continue sticking the balls into the foam all the way to top. Then stick a topping into the top of the tree to finish it off.

Save the ball stem reminisce, the covered wires work great to secure the layers of yarn used in making the yarn wound Christmas tree.

 Here's my finished product of the ball tree and my yarn tree.

This is another ball tree I made. A smaller version that didn't come out the exact way I wanted. My friend liked it so I gave it to her as Christmas present. Still had fun making them all. :O)
