My little Christmas Cone Trees are finally ready for the big day! Indeed, during the holiday season, I am always extremely busy. With so many crafts on my mind, 24 hours a day never seems to be enough! But, alas, I told myself that I needed to be diligent in order to share more beautiful free patterns with you.

If you are unable to obtain an actual Christmas tree this year, I am here to relieve you of the burden. Why not try a different type of tree to decorate your home? Continue reading to learn how to make this Christmas-themed Cone Tree Crochet Pattern your own.

I’m sure you’ve all learned that the Christmas tree is one of the most important symbols of this festive season. According to ancient history, it represents Christ giving new life to the world! They’re seen in many places during this jolly season; in homes, malls, parks, restaurants, hospitals, hotels… you name it! Just about any public area you can think of 😉 

This cone-shaped pattern resembles a pine tree and can be a great alternative to decorate your home with. In the 12th Century, Central and Eastern Europe actually hung their Christmas trees upside down from the ceiling or chandeliers as they believed it resembled the shape of Christ being crucified (quote). It’s the thought that counts, right?

Did you spot the adorable reindeer calf hiding next to the red tree? He’s out for his usual morning stroll in this colorful mystical forest. 

These cone-shaped trees require only very minimal materials, and are super easy to make! Meaning, they’re perfect to make in bulk without taking up too much of your time. The more you make, the easier it is to fill up your home with a merry atmosphere. 

If you already have a Christmas tree standing in the living room of your house, you can still crochet this pattern to decorate your room, your child’s room, your kitchen, your foyer, or even your car!

Apart from crafting it for Christmas, you can always adapt the pattern and make it into an ice cream cone, a trumpet, a loudhailer, a morning glory, and much more. This time, I used red, green, and white yarns to better match this joyful season! Of course, you may add some embellishments to decorate the plain cone tree too.

If you’re interested in making more Christmas tree patterns, you may check out this link for more inspiration. Most of them are simple and quick crafts that you can make for that last-minute push! To be more specific, the Christmas Tree Amigurumi can be used as an ornament while the Christmas Tree Crochet Pattern can be used as an embellishment piece for clothes or stockings. 

Putting up the Christmas tree and decorating with family members can be a fun bonding activity, but that doesn’t mean you need the actual tree itself to set that magical ambiance. 

What are you waiting for? Make a forest of colorful Christmas trees to brighten up any corner of your home! Check out the cone tree crochet pattern and tutorial below for free 🎄

I have just updated my home with this beautiful centerpiece on our dining table during Christmas. You can make the Christmas crochet gnome and the crochet pine trees from our free crochet patterns. Both are the extended patterns from this basic cone crochet pattern.

The reindeer cone on the top of Ikea’s PÄRLBAND candle holder is the tallest cone from the crochet pattern. Note: took the cone away before lighting up the candle.

Also, I didn’t forget to give something nice for my Marcho the Sock Monkey this Christmas. Marcho is deserving of a nice Santa Hat this Christmas because he has been good and nice since his birth in 2012.

The Santa Hat is made from the 33-round cone; simply add a pom-pom to the tip and 3 rounds of fuzzy yarn to make the rim. It is so overjoyed that he prefers to remain high on the tree to show off its new hat. If you need to see how to make the hat, you can see a similar method in the Santa hat hair clips crochet pattern.


Happy crochet!

Paper cone serves as a support for a bigger tree, it is optional.

Measure the height of the cone then draw a semi-circle with a radius slightly smaller than the height of the cone. I use a plate to trace the semi-circle.

cone treeCut out the semi-circle, roll it into a cone then insert it into the crochet cone tree.

cone treeAs you may already know, a semi-circle is 180°, however, this cone tree needs only about 100° arc angle. Henceforth, the card will overlap when it is rolled up. The overlap will further strengthen the structure of the cone. Just in case you can't make a semi-circle due to material constraint, try making at least a 120° arc angle.

cone treeHold the rolled cone and Insert it into the tree. Make sure the tip of the cone is touching the tip of the tree. Release your fingers to let the cone unroll and expand to fill the tree.

cone treeCarefully take it out and tape it with cellophane tape.

It is ok that the cone is not perfectly rolled, no one is going to notice it since it is hidden inside the cone tree.

Insert the cone into the crochet cone tree. Apply some glue to stick the cone in the tree if needed.

You may use different weights and yarn colors to create various sizes and colors of Cone Tree.

Active Time of 10 minutes is the time to make the smaller tree, a larger tree will require more time to complete.

You had mentioned that the cone tree could be filled with polyfill, how would you close the bottom? I love this design & look, thank you!!!

Hi Aimee, This is a good question and thanks for asking. Depending on the cone tree size you are making, you can crochet a circle of the equal diameter as the base for the tree. You may refer to the pine tree crochet pattern for the method how we join the base to the tree.
