DIY Styrofoam Christmas Tree

So today i wanted to share with you all the simple styrofoam tree that i made. After seeing the lovely christmas trees that Kristina from ReMade Simple was making, she inspired me to make my own. Thanks girly :)
I used white yarn and some of those little red decor balls that i used for my Pinecone Garland.
I wasn't sure what to use for the topper so I went to Michaels and found a cute little star. I thought, "this will do it."
Of course you can use whatever color of yarn you want but this is how i did it.
* * * * * * *
You will need:
Styrofoam cone (whatever size you want)
yarn
little red ball decor
glue gun
glass candleholder
scissors
Start wrapping the yarn around your styrofoam cone. I didn't worry about doing mine all perfect. I just did it all over the place and i loved the way it looked.
Once your done, add a dot of glue to the end of your yarn and glue to set.
Just like this.
Now once you've cut as many mini red balls you want to use, start gluing them onto your tree.
Keep on glueing.
Now grab your glass votive (i got mine @ Michael's, they are all 50% off!!!!) and glue it onto the bottom of your tree so that it becomes a stand.
After you've done that, glue your topper. It doesn't have to have one though. You could do it either way.
And here it is. A pretty white and red tree :)
"Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His LOVE endures forever."
Psalm 136:1
