Holiday Yarn Ornaments
Okay, so here’s what you need:
- Yarn (you can use any color)
- Sharpie Marker
- Sewing pins
- Cookie cutters (select your favorite shapes)
- Paper plate
- Plastic cup
- Parchment paper or Wax paper
Tear off a sheet of parchment paper (or wax paper) large enough to cover your paper plate. Trace around the paper plate onto the parchment paper (or wax paper) then cut out the shape of the paper plate.
Poke your sewing pins through both the parchment paper (or wax paper) and paper plate outlining the shape of your ornament.
Repeat the steps above until you have used 3 long strips of yarn on each ornament. You can randomly wrap the yarn around the sewing pins from side to side or you can decide to make it simple by just outlining the ornament. It’s totally up to you how you want to design it. Try to wrap the yarn around all of the sewing pins at least once if you can. And remember, if you start to run out of glue, simply add more glue to your plastic cup as needed.
When you’re finished wrapping the glue soaked yarn around the sewing pins be sure to tuck the ends of the yarn somewhere inconspicuous. Also, be sure to use either the side of an extra sewing pin or your finger to press the yarn down so all of the layers of yarn are touching each other. That way, once the yarn dries it will all stick together.
