DIY Winter Scarf Trees + A Holiday Table

I’d like to thank FloraCraft® for sponsoring this project.

I was happy to partner with FloraCraft® for their Foam for the Holidays campaign. I was sent a mystery box of Make it: Fun® Foam and a surprise element to add into my design. I was excited to see the box contained Make it: Fun® Foam cones of all different sizes and some Design It:® Simple Style® LED lighted branches and string lights.

My dining room table came to mind when thinking about my design.  I was thinking of ways to cozy it up for the holidays. It was playing a little cold to me, partly because there is hardly anything in it right now since we are still remodeling that part of the house. We will be using our table for our Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas morning pancake breakfast. So, I wanted to make it festive for our celebrations. Nothing says cozy holiday time better than sweaters and plaid. Whenever the temperature plunges, I love a chunky sweater or woolen plaid blanket. Those thoughts became the basis for my table design.

I had a couple of old cream scarves that I haven’t worn in quite a few years and decided to use them for this project. If you don’t have scarves, you could always stop in thrift shop for a few or some sweaters. This was so insanely easy to do! You don’t even need glue!

Supplies to make DIY Winter Scarf Trees:

your sweater material || straight pins || Make It: Fun® Foam cones in a variety of sizes

OK, this was RIDICULOUSLY easy folks! All I did was roll the scarves around the cones. I cut the scarf to size just leaving about a 1/2 inch on top and bottom.

I pinned the starting end about every inch. The straight pins worked excellent. They didn’t wiggle loose at all, I didn’t even need glue.

Then you just pin the end of your cut. The pins don’t stand out at all once placed and I like that if I want to reuse the cones in the future I can remove the sweater material without damaging them.

You just need to pin the tops and along the bottom. So easy, right!?!

I decided to work the LED lighted branches and string garland into my tablescape. I added fresh-cut greens and worked the lighted branches into them. I wrapped a couple of the scarf trees with the string lights.

I added touches of plaid with a scart as a table runner and some tartan fabric I scored at a flea market still on the bolt with the old tag still attached.

The rest is just a combination of collected plates and glassware. I went with a vintage look to continue the cozy feel. I also added the mittens to hold the silverware for a fun holiday touch.

I played around with the lights a bit too using the string lights in the branches too.

    What a beautiful table — the tartan fabric is quite a score! I love your forest of creamy, dreamy trees. I’ve seen Sweater Cones, and never thought to use a scarf instead. Brilliant! The mittens are a sweet touch, too. Thank you!

      Thanks so much Sharon :) The scarves worked so well because width wise they were the perfect length for these cones. I love it when things work out like that. xo Kristin
