Here’s what you’ll need to get started. Most people have yarn, ribbons and buttons hanging around their home already, and the cones can be bought from most any craft store. Or you can easily take some poster board and make your own!

Cardboard cones, multiple sizes
Green yarn, multiple colors/thicknesses
1/2″ red ribbon
Red buttons
Hot glue gun
Scissors

To begin, carefully glue a piece of your thickest yarn to the top of the cardboard cone and begin wrapping it around the tip and down the cone.

Every 3 inches or so, glue the strand onto the cone and keep wrapping. This helps to secure the yarn to the cone so it doesn’t unravel.

At the bottom edge, be sure to totally glue the yarn all the way around for the most security. Trim any excess yarn.

With your second color of yarn, glue the end around the tree and wrap around in any pattern you like. The contrast will look great.

Repeat the process with your third and fourth colors if you have them.

Once you are satisfied with your tree, begin gluing your red ribbon. Start at the top and wrap around to the bottom, leaving space between each rotation. Secure the end and cut off any excess.

You can always add different colors of ribbon if you choose – just make it look unique.

Finally, take your buttons and glue them all over your tree.

You can always add various colors of buttons in different sizes and shapes to resemble ornaments or colored lights. You may even want to use tiny LED lights to wrap around the finished product, though I prefer the simplicity of this version.
