Kids will love this easy Christmas craft but will need some help wrapping the yarn. In any case they will love adding the buttons to the tree! Great for exercising those fine motor skills. 

Take a look at the in progress shots below and you will see how easy it is to make this Christmas tree ornament. 

Yet another great Christmas tree craft for children this year.

DIY Yarn Christmas Tree Ornaments

Yield: 1

A beautiful Christmas tree craft for kids that lets you create a yarn wrapped tree ornament!


  • Large craft stick
  • Green yarn
  • Brown felt
  • White rick rack
  • Craft glue
  • Buttons
  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun


Step 1:  Wrap the yard around your hand about 40 times. 

Step 2: Slide the yarn off your hand and snip in half.

Step 3: Split the yarn into two sections. Apply a layer of glue to ¾ of the craft stick. Allow to dry completely. Turn the craft stick over and repeat.

Step 4: Cut a small square of the felt and fold in half. Apply a layer of glue to both sides of the bottom of the craft stick. Insert the craft stick into the felt and press together. Allow to dry completely.

Step 5: Trim the yarn on both sides of the craft stick so that it is in the shape of a Christmas tree.

Step 6: Using your glue gun, attach the buttons on the front of the tree. These are your tree ornaments. Don’t add too many or they will weigh down the ornament. 

Step 7: Cut a 6” length of yard, form a loop and using the glue gun, attach to the top of the back side of the craft stick.  

These would make a lovely gift or why not make lots and sell them at a Christmas craft stall! If you enjoyed making these you will also love my other Christmas kids crafts.
