Decorate your home for the holidays in just 10 minutes or less with this super easy craft project. These DIY tabletop trees are made with just a handful of craft supplies and can be customized to match your personal style. Simply wrap some yarn around a styrofoam cone and voila - you've got yourself a tabletop tree! You could use white yarn for a more rustic feel of snow-covered trees, or maybe a combination of red and white yarn for candy cane-inspired trees. I used worsted weight yarn for my tabletop tree, but lightweight or bulky weight yarn would work, too. This is a great stashbuster project too, since any weight yarn works!

To decorate your tree, you are once again welcome to use whatever items you have around the house :) I used a little hot glue to attach gold beads to the tree for a simple and classy look, but you could easily attach colorful pom poms for a more playful look, or roll the whole thing in glitter to make your DIY Christmas tree sparkle and shine. The best thing about these tabletop trees is not only how fast they are to make, but you can totally customize them to match your personal style and home decor. 

Estimated CostUnder $10

Time to CompleteUnder an hour

MaterialsBeads, Styrofoam, Yarn



Materials List

  • Yarn, any weight (I used worsted weight)

  • Beads, or other decor of choice 


  1. Wrap yarn around the Styrofoam cone and adhere using hot glue.

  2. Decorate the tree using your craft supplies of choice. I used hot glue to attach gold beads to the tree, and attached a gold ball ornament to the very top of the tree.

What a great family crafting project! See, even if you do not crochet or knit you can still enjoy yarning with the rest of us. Have fun picking out your color scheme- traditional Christmas colors like red and green or home decor colors like a soft blue with gray or silver would be very modern and pretty!

What a cute idea!

I made one of these a few years ago and after a friend admired it, I ended up giving it to her. I had intended on making one for myself but never did. Now this showed up and I want to make it for this year. It's so cute and so easy. The ornaments make it even better.
