12 Days of Christmas: Yarn Art Jingle Trees

12 Days of Christmas: Yarn Art Jingle Trees
Yarn Art Jingle Trees are the next project in our 12 Days of Christmas. I have seen many of these trees adorned in chunky yarn online and in stores. I always see these and think I can make them myself! So I did!
With a few simple tools and a skein of chunky yarn, I was able to assemble these two adorable trees! I added tinsel poms to give a cute burst of color, but you can be as creative and simple as you like!
Supplies you will need:
Chunky Yarn (I used Hometown Yarn from Lion Brand Yarn)
Hot Glue Gun
Hot Glue Sticks
Dowel Rod (small)
Wooden coaster or something for the base
Puff balls (optional)
First we wrapped the cones in yarn using hot glue to help them stick. (Disclaimer: Be EXTREMELY careful with the hot glue, do not burn yourself, it is very difficult to glue and wrap, so maybe having 2 sets of hands to help will be useful)
Once you have them completely wrapped in yarn, stick a dowel rod through the bottom center, then stick the rod into the wooden coaster.
Add puff balls with hot glue to the outside of the tree as well. Add a star on top if you want too! Enjoy!!

12 Days of Christmas: Festive Holiday JOY Wall Hanging (Photo Tutorial)

12 Days of Christmas: Festive Holiday JOY Wall Hanging (Photo Tutorial)

Bring a bit of *Joy* to your holiday home this season. Using a little yarn-art, you can create this door/wall hanging in a few short minutes using my step-by-step instructions. This lovely homemade, home town decor piece is sure to bring joy and happiness to any home it graces.

Disclaimer: this project requires the use of a hot glue gun. Please be careful using any type of heated tool as these can cause burns. Please supervise children when attempting this project.
I used the following supplies listed below to complete this project

To make the feather, I used the feather crochet tutorial I found on YouTube by Claudetta Crochet and you can view it HERE.

The feather is NOT my own design, but I found the video tutorial extremely helpful in making the one I attached to the wreath in this project.

Supplies needed:
Click on the links to shop online for these same products.

J and Y wooden letters

Mini Wreath (8 inches)

Holly Berries

Hometown Yarn in off white color

Wool Ease yarn in red

Basic Stitch yarn in Green

Hot Glue Gun

Hot Glue Sticks

Red Ribbon

G-4.25mm crochet hook

Scissors

Yarn Needle

 

 

I first wrapped the letters in the chunky yarn and used hot glue to keep it attached

Next, I glued the J and Y to the wreath using hot glue, and I also attached the ribbon on the back of the letter J with hot glue as well

 

 

Next, I crocheted the feather using this video tutorial as a guide

 

Then I attached the feather and the holly berries to the wreath with hot glue

 

 

 

This is how it all turned out!! I LOVE IT!!

12 Days of Christmas: Pine Cone Wreath Ornament

12 Days of Christmas: Pine Cone Wreath Ornament

Grab a glue gun, some pine cones from the yard (or store), and a few yarn scraps to make this sweet holiday wreath ornament! This is a perfect craft for kiddos at home and it takes almost no time at all to assemble.

You will love brightening the cones with colorful yarn. A little hot glue and you form a wreath! Now add a loop for hanging on the tree. You don’t have to make a wreath. Fill a decorative bowl with yarn wrapped pine cones and you have a lovely centerpiece!

I bought these pine cones from the craft store.

 

I disassembled the pine cones from the stem they were attached to.

 

I hot glued the pine cones in a circle form to make the wreath.

 

 

 

Once they were all hot glued together, I made this loop with yarn. I chained 32 and Double crocheted in the 3rd chain from the hook and all the way across, then I sewed the two ends together after I wrapped it around the pine cone wreath.

 

I wrapped yarn inside each of the pine cones in all different colors and glued it in.

 

 

This is the final outcome and how it looks on the Christmas Tree

12 Days of Christmas: Candy Cane Place-card Holder with a Bow

12 Days of Christmas: Candy Cane Place-card Holder with a Bow

On the first day of Christmas we take a candy cane, we add a cute bow, and a lovely name tag…🎶🎵

This is how you make an adorable holiday place card holder. Add this to any table setting to bring some Christmas flair to your family dinner!

Here is a list of supplies I used:

Candy canes

Hot Glue Gun

Hot Glue Sticks

Size G-4.25mm Crochet Hook

Scissors

Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice

Paper for the Name Tag

 

 

To start, I crocheted a bow.

Pattern for this small bow is as follows:

Ch 30

SC in 1st chain to form a loop and continue to SC around in each Ch, Work in continuous rounds working in the BLO for 6 rounds.
Fasten off with a very long tail.

Follow along with this tutorial to learn how to make a bow:

 

You can make your bow any size, but I only chained 30 at the beginning for the foundation row.

 

I used the long strand of yarn that I cut at the end to wrap around the center of the bow to cinch it in.

 

Then I took hot glue and glued the THREE candy canes together so they would stand up.

 

Once they were dried and attached, I hot glued on the bow.

 

I added a place card with the name written fancy. You can add this to your table setting for an extra detail to your holiday decor!

Enjoy!!

 

 

 

I did this project in just a few minutes. It was sooooo easy!!
