Fairy Tale Forest Trees

So you have yarn cones, just not sure what to do with them?  Create a forest of trees!

Yarn Cones are cones that yarn was stored on

We used 12 x 18 painted paper, traced our hands on the unpainted side and cut, cut, cut. the hands out. Next we glued the hand down started at the bottom and working up. Lastly, we used the extra scraps cut, curled then glued them down.

Since we have started our Fairy Tale Unit we will be adding more to the Fairy Tale Forest. Please check out our previous Fairy Tale Unit on Flickr.


  1. These are fantastic! I wonder if it work with cones of cardstock? I have no yarn cones!

  2. Yes, Cardstock would work, just make sure you put your hand inside for support! :)

  3. this is very cool. I am about to start a session building imaginary habitats and making the creatures to live there. this is a very helpful idea? Have you seen Alice Hudson's A Palace for Wednesday" ? I saw it when I was in San Diego at the Mingei International Museum.
