I didn’t know what else to call them. They’re balls, wrapped in yarn. Yarn balls. I know, it’s silly. But if you’d like to know how to make some to add some pretty silliness to your space, I’ve got a tutorial for you.
- Styrofoam balls (any size will do)
- Wooden skewers
- Craft glue
So, start by shoving the skewers lovingly into the Styrofoam balls. Pointed end in works best.
Starting at the bottom around the stick, spread some glue and begin wrapping the yarn around in a spiral.
Keep gluing and wrapping the yarn around until you get to the top.
Now you should have some perfectly round textured balls to display. I like these because of the texture and the perfect roundness. They could be embellished with a ribbon tied underneath the balls into a bow. Really, these are unfinished to me but I can’t decide what to do with them further. I think these will be perfect in my daughters’ room.
So what would you do with them? What would you add? What would you do differently? I’d love to know!
