"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Pom Pom Yarn Christmas Trees

Make these cute and fun Pom-Pom Yarn Christmas Trees to help add a festive touch to your mantel or Christmas table.  If you're struggling to come up with new holiday craft ideas, these little trees will be a great addition to your holiday decorations.  Made in a few simple steps, these Pom Pom Trees are great last minute decor ideas and look great on their own or assembled in groups of three. Create a few Pom-Pom Yarn Christmas Trees to really add some whimsy to your home.

Pom Pom Yarn Christmas Trees

Materials:

  • 1 ball Red Heart® “Spark-a-Doodle™” yarn in Shamrock (A)
  • 1 ball Red Heart® “Spark-a-Doodle™” yarn in Reddy (B)
  • 300 straight pins with small metal heads
  • (1) 3" x 6" Styrofoam® cone
  • (1) 3 7/8" x 9" Styrofoam® cone
  • (1) 3 7/8" x 11 7/8" Styrofoam® cone

Instructions:
To make wrapping easier, cut individual strands of yarn in 10 yard lengths. As each strand is added, pin last pompom of previous strand and first pompom of new strand securely to cone.

Small Tree

  1. Attach one strand of A and B to bottom edge of cone with one pin each, so that the first pompom of each strand are next to each other.
     
  2. Wrap strand around cone pinning the center of the strand to the bottom edge to hide the foam. Continue attaching and wrapping strands, pinning pompoms as needed to cover strands from previous rows, and allowing the 2 colors to start a spiral pattern around the cone. You may have to pull the yarn a little tighter in some places, or let it fall slack to keep the spiral pattern.
     
  3. Just before reaching the top of the cone, hold the strands between the pompoms toward the top, covering the strand in the previous row with the pompoms.
     
  4. Gather the extra strands on top of the cone and pin the last pompom of A and B on top of the strands to cover.
     

Medium and Large Trees

  1. Beginning at the top of the cone, and holding two strands together of the same color, pin pompoms to the top of the cone, covering it completely.
     
  2. Continue wrapping and pinning strands same as for small tree, holding the strand between the pompoms at the bottom of the cone.
     
  3. Just before reaching the base of the cone, pull strands a little tighter as necessary to create the best pompom coverage.
     
  4. Pin the center of the strand between pompoms along the edge of the base to hide the cone.

Are you making the pompom by crochet or just making them with the yarn. It does not tell you? I remember making some when I was about 7 and we used pr-made pompoms and glued them to a strofoam tree forms and glued them on. I think we did them in school. I wish there was some pictures or video because they are cute.

How would I do this with individual little poms?? I tried bobby pins...they tore up the Styrofoam

I love these xmas trees and would love to make them ,my problem with this project is getting the yarn in australia if you know of a brand I can purchase in my country that is able to make the trees I would be grateful thank you Josie Hughes.

This doesn't say you have to buy the pom poms as well as the yarn and styrofoam cones.

Red Heart discontinued the doodle yarn.
