Farmhouse-Style Tabletop Christmas Trees

It’s the day after Thanksgiving – the official start of the Christmas season! If you’re like me and not into all the crazy shopping today, this would be a great day to spend crafting…

I love farmhouse/vintage decor! The Christmas season is a perfect time to craft a little something farmhouse-y. 😉

These sweet little trees are so easy to make and will add the perfect touch to your table or shelf. All you need are some styrofoam cones (I got my little ones at the dollar store and the larger one at Hobby Lobby), some chunky yarn (I used Bernat Blanket Yarn in Vintage White), craft glue, and something for the tree topper. I used kraft card stock to make stars to top my trees.

To make the trees, begin by putting a thin layer of glue on the top of the cone. Attach the end of the yarn in the center of the top and make a little coil until the top is covered. Add a little more glue on the sides and continue wrapping the yarn around the cone until you get near the bottom, no need to add glue to the entire cone. I added more glue before I wrapped the last couple of rows. Then just cut the yarn making sure to glue the end securely.

To make my stars, I used my star dies and cut 2 stars from kraft card stock for each tree. I glued them together with a toothpick sandwiched between them. Then I added a button to the center of each star. Once they were dry, I pushed the toothpick into the top of the tree.

I used this same soft, chunky yarn to make the wreath below – you can find the details on how to make it here. These trees look so great with it! (It really is the same yarn, just different lighting in the photos 😊)

And here are my completed Farmhouse-Style Christmas Trees! I love how they turned out!

This would be a fun craft to make with the kids! The styrofoam cones come in so many different sizes – you could make a whole forest! 😊

Thanks for stopping by,
