I am on a missions to make quick decorations for our succah (less than one week to go and not many free days, yikes!) that will also diminish my odds and ends of yarn. For starters instead of laboring over pom poms, I'm making tons of small decorative yarn balls which look great, and I'm also finally using up all the tiny little foam balls that I have on hand from the ping pong birthday party I threw a year ago, yippee!
I'm going to be stringing these vertically to use as a decorative chandelier of sorts (at least that is the plan) but I think they could also look fantastic as a centerpiece for your coffee table, the perfect way to enjoy combinations of colors that you love, or to add some seasonal color!
- yarn, hopefully those little odds and ends you don't know what to do with
- small foam balls, mine are about the size of a ping pong ball
- hot glue
How To: Dab some hot glue on the foam ball (sparingly as hot glue melts styrofoam) place the end in the hot glue and start wrapping the ball. Add more dots of hot glue here and there, but be careful not to overdue it as you don't want to see any hot glue! Keep wrapping the ball in all directions making sure that the resulting ball of yarn looks mostly round. That is it, so simple and so wonderful to have on hand for some many crafting adventures!
Stay tuned for more stash busting yarn ideas, and have a wonderful week!
