Make and Create: Christmas Sprinkles Cone Trees

Christmas Sprinkles Cone tree

If you’re searching for a delightful DIY project that adds a touch of pastel fun and whimsy to your festive decor, you’re in for a treat. We’ll guide you through how to create colourful and fun Christmas Sprinkles Cone Trees using just a handful of materials. Grab your hot glue gun and let’s get started!

Materials You’ll Need for Your Christmas Sprinkles Cone Trees:

  • Polystyrene cone (readily available at craft stores)
  • Chunky wool in pastel hues of your choice
  • Small pom poms in a variety of complimenting pastel colours
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors


Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Before you begin crafting, ensure you have all your materials laid out on your crafting table for easy access.

Step 2: Starting at the Base

Kick off your project by anchoring a strand of pastel chunky wool at the base of the polystyrene cone using your trusty hot glue gun. This will serve as the foundation for your first delightful Christmas Sprinkles Cone Tree.

Step 3: Twist and Glue

Here comes the fun part! Begin wrapping the pastel chunky wool around the cone, gently twisting it as you progress. Remember to apply small dots of hot glue at intervals as you wind the wool. This not only ensures a secure hold but also helps you maintain control over the design.

Step 4: Adjust as You Go

As you continue upward, you may find it necessary to nudge the strands of wool closer together to achieve a lush, full appearance,

Step 5: Finish at the Top

Once you’ve reached the top of the cone, use a final dab of hot glue to secure the pastel chunky wool. Trim any excess wool with your scissors to achieve a neat finish.

Step 6: Add Playful Pom Poms

For that extra dash of whimsy, consider adorning your pastel Christmas Sprinkles Cone Tree with colourful pom poms.

To give the pom poms a visual “anchor” we wound a piece of white wool around the tree about 4 times (adjust depending on the height of your tree, and personal preference), working from the bottom to the top. Secure in place with a few drops from your trusty hot glue gun.

With that in place, then attach the pom poms to the tree using your hot glue gun, placing them along the white woollen line that you just created.

The pom poms add a splash of colour and certainly lend a playful and festive feel to your creation.

Step 7: There’s More Where That Came From!

Repeat to process with different sized cones and wool colours to create co-ordinating Christmas Sprinkles Cone Trees in a variety of sizes and colours.

Step 8: Admire Your Handiwork

Take a step back and admire your handmade masterpieces! These pastel Christmas Sprinkles Cone Trees make wonderful additions to your holiday decor.

We love them as a table centrepiece or nestled on the mantle, but let your imagination be the guide. They are such a versatile piece that can be used throughout your home.

With just a handful of materials and a touch of imagination, you’ve introduced a touch of pastel elegance to your Christmas decor.

Crafting these Christmas Sprinkles Cone Trees is not only enjoyable but also infuses your home with a warm, inviting ambiance during the holiday season. So, gather your crafting supplies, unleash your creativity, and make this Christmas season truly magical!

Happy crafting! And may your holidays be filled with joy, warmth, and the charm of your handmade delights! 🎄✨ 🍬🍭
