A Musical Christmas Tree Made With Yarn

Hi sweet friends, I'm so glad you're here!  A few weeks ago when I pulled out the boxes of Christmas decorations I found a musical Christmas tree that was in need of repair.  It was a favorite of mine growing up!  My mom would display it during the holidays and I would twist the bottom of it to listen to the sweet song that played from the music box.  It had a green and silver mesh Christmas tree on it and played Silent Night. I thought I could restore the mesh tree, but it was beyond my capabilities.  However the music box and metal sticks were in good condition, so I thought I would just go ahead and replace the tree.

I made a short video for you to hear the sweet music it plays. The video is at the end of this post.



I purchased a Styrofoam tree form at Michaels and used white yarn that I already had.


                            
                                        Starting at the base I wrapped the yarn around the tree form.


When I reached the top, I used a small amount of spray adhesive to keep the yarn intact.

I used feather yarn to give the tree some fluff.  
Then I poked a hole in the bottom of the Styrofoam with the metal sticks and pushed them through to the top.  Now the tree stands on the music box.


My Christmas tree needed a topper.  
I used a vintage light bulb from a set of bulbs that my mother gave me. 



I displayed my white, fluffy, musical Christmas tree with a few tiny faux trees that I purchased at Target.

This year I gave the wreath a mini makeover with more pine cones and gold spray paint.
I attached it to a black chalkboard.
