Yarn Ball Ornament

Yarn Ball Ornaments

Show off your favorite yarn craft with this easy and fun yarn busting project. Give these fun little ornaments as a gift to your favorite stitcher or use them as gift toppers. I’m thinking about making some into gift toppers with the leftover yarn I used to make this year’s gifts. That way, my family members have a little hint about what to expect inside their gifts, and it lets them know how it’s made!

T-Shirt Yarn

By Craft Trends Contributor, Lacey. Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

I have too many t-shirts. My t-shirt drawer over flows with a multitude of colors and baggy fits that I never actually find time or the occasion to wear. My mom has constantly over the years asked me to toss some of these shirts out to create space for clothes that might actually see the light of day. Unfortunately for my dresser, I’m much to sentimental and practical to just toss out a t-shirt. Instead of wasting these memories and fabric I’ve been on the search for something to do and create with my old t-shirts. One craft trend that has emerged and has given my old t-shirts a new purpose and a new life is t-shirt yarn. There’s a number of options for this new medium of yarn and I’m excited by the possibilities I have found so far.

Using yarn, plastic canvas and fabric this case will keep your needles in place in a fashionable way.

Yarn Bomb!

Once upon a time I lived in New York City where the lights are bright, the streets are busy, and the yarn bombing is awesome. As a knitter, I can’t help but love yarn bombing. Colorful and fun, it makes me grin every time I see a bike rack or store handle or stop sign covered in yarn. Add a little yarn bombing to your life!

You could yarn bomb a bike rack – this one looks pretty modern and artsy, am I right?

Or a bike (how beautiful is that? No, really. I want that for my bike. I mean, first I have to get a bike. But then I want that for my bike!)

And phone booths on either side of the pond love to be yarn bombed
