Five More Crafty Christmas Tree Alternatives

Christmas tree made from yarn

2. Yarn Tree

Over at Lion Brand they have quite a few free Christmas craft patterns including this one for a yarn tree. No knitting or crocheting required.

This is a small tree but if you have a lot of yarn you could make a bigger one. You could even take the same basic idea and instead of wrapping with yarn, try wrapping with scraps of fabric, old scarves, ribbon or a mixture of several types of fabric and even string to make a fabulously textured tree.

  1. Oh, I would totally use real candles on the wooden tree! We put real candles on our fresh tree, and the glow of candlelight is just amazing. As long as you use common sense–e.g., use sturdy clip-on candleholders that keep the candles vertical, light candles only when you’re in the same room, be sure to have a fire extinguisher around (which is something you should do in any season, I think)–having real candles on a tree can be just as safe as using light strings. Maybe even safer (every winter there are plenty of stories of house fires started by faulty wiring in light strings)!

    1. True but I have unruly children and cats that like to climb the tree (the cats not the kids πŸ™‚

      So candles are a big no- I don’t even burn scented candles anymore unless my kids are not home (which by the way I pick eco-friendly soy wax and natural scents).
