Yarn Ball Wreath



I decided I needed a new wreath for my door. I love knitting, I love yarn, so what better decoration than a yarn ball wreath ?

I made this using styrofoam balls and some scrap yarn I had. I found an extra set of bamboo knitting needles and ta-da! My yarn ball wreath was born!

Wrap scrap yarn around styrofoam balls - glue the end when done with the ball (I used a hot glue gun)
Arrange balls in a wreath shape (just lay on the table or floor)
Insert a toothpick between the balls to help hold them together
Glue the sides of the balls together
Insert knitting needles, hang and enjoy.
Pin It!
