Super Easy Yarn Ball Ornaments!

In: Holiday Tutorials

Here is one of the most easy ornaments you will ever make.  All you need is some left-over yarn and a cheap-o Dollar Tree plastic ornament.  Or even an ugly one your Great Aunt Gladys gave you one year.  If Great Aunt Gladys is no longer with us, I sincerely apologize and will make it better by showing you how to make her ugly ornament adorable!

They are pretty self explanatory, but for the sake of chatting…  I’ll walk you through it.

Step 1-
Find pretty yarn that has been stashed in a drawer, hidden by your cat, or new at the store.

Step 2-
Hold said ugly ornament in left hand.  That is presumptuous of me- if you are a lefty, hold it in your right.

Step 3-
Hold glue gun in right hand- again, I apologize to the leftys in the room, you will need to hold it in your left hand.

Step 4-
Put a dot of glue on the ornament.  Stick yarn to dot without burning finger.

This is the start of the criss cross wrapping.
(criss cross makes me think of backward pants.)
This is the start of the spiral wrapping.

Step 5-
Proceed to add many dots to ugly ornament and wrap yarn to continuously cover the ugly.

Step 6-
Repeat step five until the ugly has left the room.
