o christmas tree

Finally! Spotted at Macy's this evening: a Christmas tradition I can really get behind.

Giant balls of yarn in Christmas tree form.

It has everything good holiday decorating embodies! Colorfulness, whimsy, uniqueness, a reflection of its creator's sensibilities, and a sense of coziness. Then again, wool always lends the latter touch to any enterprise for which it is chosen.

When I pointed it out to my husband, he responded that we could probably come up with at least two such trees, based upon the amount of yarn already in residence at our house. Needless to say, I ignored the jab and started to calculate how many balls of red heart and styrofoam balls it would take to execute. As awesome as that tree is, there is no way my stash would be used for such a purpose.


  1. LOVE IT!

    But where are the icicle needles?

  2. Yes, this tree would be a happy tradition to start! My heart gets happy just looking at beautiful/colorful yarn or fabric. A tree made from it sounds like a slice of heaven. Hmmmm....maybe some little styrofoam yarn balls could be hung from our X-mas tree this year! Great idea for some ornaments. Love it!

  3. Between this and the trees made from green reference books in the library, I can be a happy camper!
