Ten Minute Cable Knit Trees to Last You Through Winter
December 10, 2011
The sweet folks at Lion Brand Yarn contacted us a few weeks ago to see if we would be interested in trying out a few of their products. Seriously? Pinch me now! We thought about it for half a second and quickly hopped over to their site to take a look at what they had to offer.
I immediately fell in love with the Lofty Wool Blend yarn from the Martha Stewart Crafts Collection. Just take a look at Snowdrift in all her soft and fluffy goodness. So cuddly!
Now, I don’t knit, but it just screamed cable knit sweater to me! I instantly knew that it would be perfect to make a cable knit tree for Christmas! This was one of the easiest and quickest crafts I have made in a long time and I am so in love with it! It literally took me ten minutes to make it… no joke!
Here is what you will need…
Martha Stewart Lofty Wool Blend Yarn
Finial or Ornament for the Top
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Step One. Glue the first layer of yarn to your styrofoam cone (make sure you leave a little at the start tucked under the bottom).
Step Two. Wrap all the way up the cone. You need to cover the styrofoam, but don’t wrap too tight or your tree won’t be “fluffy”. When you get to the top, glue down the ends.
Step Three. Glue your finial or ornament to the top and you are done! Crazy easy and just so pretty!
Here she is with our ribbon tree that we showed you a few weeks ago. You can find the tutorial here. I also had to include a starfish, a jute wrapped ornament, and more shine and glitter to the mix. Just perfect for my Coastal Christmas decor. The best thing about these trees is that after Christmas is over I can keep them out all winter!
Hope you guys are enjoying all of the joy that the holidays bring!
