In South Georgia, we sadly do not get a lot of snow. But this super cute DIY Hobby Lobby Loop-It Yarn Christmas Tree makes all my dreams of a white Christmas come true!
I know that I make a lot of Dollar Tree DIY crafts, but I couldn’t resist this Hobby Lobby loop-it yarn and Christmas tree cone form.

Time to get started!
To get this DIY Christmas Tree Decor started, I went ahead and painted the entire base of my Hobby Lobby paper mache cone tree white with Apple Barrel Snow White Acrylic Paint. The cones have a light brown color that I don’t want to peek through the loop it yarn.
Make sure the paint is dry before you move to the next step! I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process. If you don’t have a heat gun, a hair dryer works great for this!
Time to get loopy!
Can I just say how much I love Hobby Lobby’s loop it yarn? I know, it is typically used for crocheting or knitting, but it adds such a unique flair to my DIY projects!
Alright, open up your loopy yarn and find the beginning point. You are going to wrap this around the entire Hobby Lobby Christmas Then, hot glue this to the base of your Christmas tree. Began to wrap the loopy yarn around your tree and wrap all the way up!
Make sure you pull the loop it yarn tightly as you’re wrapping it so you don’t see any empty spaces. When you get to the top of the cone tree form, push the loop-it yarn down to fit as much yarn on the tree form as possible.
You could also hot glue every couple of layers as you wrap the yarn around the tree form, I just wasn’t going to do all that glueing!
I wanted to add a little bit of bling to my Christmas Tree. I know, how rare! Honestly, I really am not a fan of bling or glitter, but I thought the Dollar Tree diamond wrap ribbon would be so cute around the bottom of my Hobby Lobby paper mache cone trees.
Measure the length of ribbon that you’ll need and trim it off the spool. Then, just hot glue the diamond wrap ribbon around the bottom. This is such a cute way to add a little sparkle!
Add a messy bow!
If you know me, you know I love my messy bows! I couldn’t resist adding one of these to the top of my DIY Christmas Tree Decor!
To make my messy bow, I ripped up some strips of my black Dollar Tree Buffalo Check Fabric. I prefer to tear the fabric rather than cut it because I really like the frayed edges.
To create the bow, I folded my first strip of fabric in half and then folded my second strip of fabric in half the opposite way.I placed the second strip of fabric on top of the first and kept repeating the process with more fabric!
This can be a little confusing so make sure to check out the video if you need to! After I was satisfied with the number of strips, I secured the center of my fabric bow with a strip of the red buffalo check Dollar Tree fabric.
Time for the finishing touches
Finally, I tied a strip of my red ribbon to the top of my tree to create a little tail for my messy bow! Then, I attached my messy bow to my DIY Christmas Tree with a little hot glue!
Y’all, I am in love with this DIY Hobby Lobby Loop-It Yarn Christmas Tree and can’t wait to make more!
