It's a new year, but I still need to share one last project that you can make now for Christmas 2017. It's my Fun Fur Tree.
This project was super cheap because I used this Fun Fur yarn I found in a bin at Dollar Tree. (If I had used a homemade poster board cone instead of a foam cone, it would have been even cheaper.)
The color is Taupe.
Yep, I did the usual - wrapped the yarn around and around the cone until it was covered.
I topped it off with my last snowflake ornament - no glue - just pushed it down into the foam cone.
I really love how this one turned out - the color - the texture - everything about it!
I displayed it alone and also placed it on top of a wood slice coaster - again no glue. I could even change out the snowflake topper for a small pinecone.
I hope these 5 make-ahead projects gave you some ideas on things you could do during the slower winter evenings of January to help you beat the Christmas rush of 2017. Happy crafting!
All is well in the Keweenaw.
