Yarn {covered} ornaments


I had been seeing all sorts of fun little handmade ornament tutorials, so I thought I would try my own. Except, I don't know if these are actually 'handmade' since they stem from real ornaments.

Whatever though, they turned out pretty cute.


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!

And do you love how it looks on my snowflake runner??


Happy holiday crafting, friends!

Ooooh I love yarn crafts! I have some lame Christmas ball ornaments and tons of yarn. Maybe if I am extra good and get the other stuff on my to-do list done faster I can make some time to make these {realistically this will be on the list for next Christmas}! Thanks for sharing.

Those yarn ornaments are perfect! Being a knitter, I always have leftover yarn, so this would be a great way to use some of it up. Thank you for sharing!
