Scrap Yarn Christmas Tree Ornament

I've been telling myself not to procrastinate on Christmas projects for weeks now. And where am I? Crocheting Christmas gifts at 11pm 4 days before Christmas.. I'm so excited to give some homemade gifts this season! But I really wish I had finished some of these before. 

Of course inspiration always has to strike at the last second!

Scrap Yarn Christmas Tree Ornament


Here is a great quick and easy way to add a little bit of fiber into your decorating! I save all of my scraps of yarn in a bin in my yarn room. Over the year I've built up a LOT, so I'm always looking to get rid of it somehow without throwing it away.

I was at Michael's buying yarn when I came cross these plastic ornaments for super cheap! I remembered seeing a lot of things on Pinterest with people putting things inside, painting the outside, doing hand prints, etc. and I knew I could use them for something crafty.

I chose some scraps from these owl hats I was making a few weeks ago, and put them inside one of the balls. I think for about 5 seconds of work it looks pretty cute! 

And whats even better is I can take the yarn out and change the color for next year! Yep. I'm definitely going back after Christmas and grabbing a bunch of these marked down.

All you have to do is pop off the top and squish a handful of yarn in there! The amount is up to you. Now hang it on your tree and enjoy (:

    1. Thanks! I got the idea from seeing people put other things in bulbs on Pinterest.
