Yarn Ornaments

Today I’m excited to introduce Lindsay from Southern Lovely. She has an amazing yarn ornament to share, today!


Well hello there! I’m Lindsay, and I blog over at Southern Lovely. Being a busy mom of three, crafting is sometimes hard to come by. I love a good DIY, painting or sewing project. I usually do my best work after the kids have gone to bed. :)

When Katie asked if I would participate in her ‘handmade ornament’ series this year, I was very excited! I love ornaments of all kinds, and being able to use them in places other than the tree.

Here’s what I came up with..

Okay, so technically this is not completely ‘handmade’, but I’m going with it anyway. :)

Supplies needed:
Ornaments–old or new, I picked these up at Target’s dollar section
Yarn
Hot glue

To begin, put a little hot glue at the top of your ornament to secure your yarn, then start wrapping.


You will want to add hot glue every so often, it will help so the yarn stays in place. I noticed that the glittery ornaments wrapped so much easier then the plain ones. I also noticed that once you are 3/4 of the way through, it get’s kind of hard & takes a little patience. So stick with it, and you will have adorable little ornaments before you know it. :)


I really love how they turned out. I actually like seeing the hint of color beneath the yarn. Gives it a little something extra.

I decided to display them in the new cloche that I picked up at a thrift store.
You could also stack them in a glass jar.
So many possibilities!


Enjoy!


Thanks so much for having me here today, Katie!

Happy Holidays!
