DIY Yarn ornaments
If you are a regular follower of mine then you know about my obsession with yarns. I love the colors, and different textures they come in but I was never able to accomplish crocheting so I use yarn for other craft projects.
My aunts even tried teaching me how to crochet when I was a little girl but it just wasn’t happening. Then they tried again when I became an adult, again…just not going to happen. They have accepted that and we have all moved on. But I still love yarn. I always find the most beautiful wool and mohair yarns when I am out second hand shopping. I have so much that one of my aunts even gifted me with a big cabinet to store all my yarns in. I just bought a few baskets to help separate them all by colors. Baskets are great for organizing.
It is so easy to make these yarn ornaments. I had a bag of Styrofoam and all types of yarns so I thought I would combine the two. Later, months later, I would see something similar done with vases on YouTube. Remember there is nothing new under the sun as they say. To make your own yarn balls you will need these supplies:
Tacky glue or school glue
Yarn- assorted colors
Styrofoam balls-assorted sizes
Just glue different colors of yarn around Styrofoam balls
Don’t forget to push a paper clip into your Styrofoam to hang a string from after you have finished gluing on the yarn.
This would be a fun project to do with family during Christmas celebrations. Have a table all set up with baskets of yarns, glue, holiday embellishments and a couple ornaments finished to use as guides. Multi colored yarns make the prettiest ornaments.When guests go home they get to leave with an ornament they made. Happy crafting everyone.
