How to Make a Yarn Christmas Tree

4. Paint a clothespin with brown paint and allow it to dry.

Clip the clothespin to the bottom of the tree.

Now you should be able to stand the Christmas tree on the clothespin. If you find your Christmas tree is not standing up, it may be that it is too heavy. Try making the size of the tree smaller with less yarn.
