A Musical Christmas Tree Made With Yarn

December 18, 2016

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, I remember winding the music box to listen to the sweet song that it played.  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 white styrofoam cone.  You can find them at Amazon.  The white yarn I had on hand. 




                            
                                        Starting at the base I wrapped the yarn around the styrofoam cone.


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 to me. 



I displayed my white, fluffy, musical Christmas tree with a few mini faux evergreen trees.  





The pine cone wreath I made last year How to Make a Pine Cone Wreath.  This year I gave the wreath a mini makeover with more pine cones and gold spray paint. I attached it to a black chalkboard.
