If you love yarn for knitting, crochet or any fiber art, then this is the ornament for you.
For lovers of yarn, there is nothing more satisfying that a yummy ball of yarn with (or without) needles poking through. For me it’s the possibility of what the skein of yarn contains – what will it end up being? A scarf, socks, a sweater, slippers, gloves, a coffee cozy, a cat toy, or a blanket.
This was a very easy ornament, very fast and a great chance to use scraps of yarn. I used a glass ornament, my glue gun, tooth picks, beads, ribbon and scraps of yarn.
Starting at the top of the ornament, I ran a thin bead of glue around the top of the ball and laid the yarn in the glue. I continued around until I reached the bottom then I wrapped the yarn haphazardly around the ball. After I was happy with the end result, I secured the end with a dot of glue. For the “needles”, I took a toothpick, glued the end into a round bead and tucked them into the “skein”. Took no more than 10 minutes.
