Yarn Ball Ornament Tutorial
Want to make some of your own?
Well, let me show you how.
To begin, you will need several clear plastic ball ornaments. I bought mine in the after Christmas sales at Michael's last year for maybe $1.00 each.
To begin, put a gob of glue on your ball and push the end of your yarn into the glue. Once this piece is firmly dried in place, add glue gobs all over your ball and start wrapping your yarn randomly around.
Sorry that I do not have step by step pictures of the gluing and wrapping - I needed to work fast to get the yarn wrapped around the ball before the glue dried.
Never the less, I am sure you can see how this all goes....you keep wrapping. And wrapping. Around and around you go. Until the clear plastic ball is completely covered and you are left with this.
Wrap your remaining clear balls with the other yarns that you have.
