Supplies Needed; 1 (8-in.) Green Cone-Shaped Styrofoam Form, 1 Package of Green Chenille Stems (Pipe cleaners), Wire Cutters or Utility Scissors, Dark Green Temper Paint, 1 Package Gum Drops
Directions; Begin by painting your styrofoam cone dark green. Cut chenille stems in a variety of lengths. Insert the shorter stem pieces in the top of the form, and increase the stem lengths as you work down toward the base of the cone creating the christmas tree shape. As you work your way down, push different colored gum drops into the chenille stems. Cover the form with the chenille stems and gum drops. You can bend them in any direction you desire since no Christmas tree is perfect. When you are finished, print and cut out the star shape (see below). Place a 3" stem into the top of the tree. Glue the star (sandwich style) to the top stem.
Supplies needed; Styrofoam ball, white yarn, white felt, pink felt, pencil, glue, festive ribbon, 2 blue beads or micro pompoms, small black pompom.
Directions; Wrap Styrofoam ball in yarn, until the ball is completely covered and Styrofoam is no longer visible. When the yarn completely covers the ball, tie a knot and cut off the excess yarn. Using the white felt, use your pencil to draw two long oval shapes (for exterior ear), then draw two slightly smaller shapes using the pink felt (inner ear). Cut out both sets of ears. Glue the pink felt to the center of the white felt, to create the ears. Once dry, glue the ears to the desired location on your yarn wrapped foam ball. Glue your small black pompom in the nose location, next glue on the blue beads or micro pompoms as the eyes. Finally, cut about 6-8” of ribbon and glue it centrally between the ears. Allow to dry before hanging.
