Christmas is just around the corner and the excitement is gaining momentum in our house as Christmas Eve creeps closer and closer. The girls are excitedly writing lists, planning meals and remembering the treasure trove of decorations stored in our attic. You can never have too many Christmas decorations and these super cute pipe cleaner Christmas Trees are always on our list of ‘Christmas Makes‘.
All you need are some 30cm green pipe cleaners (I used cotton pipe cleaners as they work better with pva glue but chenille could work just as well you just might find them a bit thick), mini pom poms and a glue gun or PVA (white) glue.
How To Make Your Pipecleaner Christmas Trees
First curl your pipe cleaner into a snail shell shape. Next, carefully pull up from the center of the snail shape to create your cone shape. Wrap/tuck the outer end of the pipe cleaner around the next curl to secure a circle base (this allows the pipe cleaner to stand). Finally glue your pom poms to the pipe cleaner.
I love to use them as mini decorations on tables and shelves. They also get hung on my twig trees and my girls always whisk a few off to place in dolls and playmobil houses.
