Styrofoam and Crochet Fir Trees

By: Katherine Eng from Red Heart Yarn

Using a couple of Styrofoam cones and some Red Heart Holiday yarn, along with this free crochet pattern, you can come up with these cute fir trees. Set them in a row on your dining room table for a lovely centerpiece or arrange them on your mantel for a cute Christmas display that you're sure to love.  This is a fun one-skein Christmas craft project that is sure to delight crochet fans of all skill levels.  If you're feeling super creative, you could even make these trees in bright winter colors (think blue, pink, and silver) and have them on display all season long!
