I am normally not one to follow trends. I like to be unique in almost everything I do.
Sometimes though, the cuteness factor sways my opinion.
Like when it comes to making a Yarn Ball Wreath.
HUGE cuteness factors are involved.
I just had to steal this idea.
It called to me.
Many talented bloggers have had their own versions, and I must say I was tempted, but not completely swayed by them.
Until I saw the one over at Cherished Bliss.
She used twine in with the balls of yarn. It was the magic combination for me.
I was hooked!
I also loved her idea of starting with a ball of newspaper and then wrapping the twine around it. Brilliant! It uses less yarn that way.
It’s also lighter, and easier to glue them down.
I used baking twine, regular twine, colored twine and scraps of yarn from my knitting projects.
I used newspapers until I ran out of them, then I started in on the Christmas catalogue pages. I have millions of those, could have made balls FOREVER with them.
I hot glued them to a wire wreath frame and hung it on the door. Easy peasy!
Note to self: hot glue sticks to tables. Use plastic underneath to avoid the embarrassment of prying it off the table before dinner time in front of the family.
I almost stuck a candle in the middle and made it a center piece. Good thing the glue wasn’t really dry yet.
What do you have hanging on your front door?
