I was playing around last night with some scrap yarn and Christmas baubles and came up with these little beauties! They only take 10 minutes each and you can use any size ball and any weight yarn you need to use up. I used left over Vintage purls sock yarn for these two.
I thought i would put up a tutorial in case anyone else wanted to give them a go :)
You will need
Styrofoam balls or fugly Christmas baubles (any size)
Scrap yarn (any weight)
Knitters darning needle, large
Start wrapping your yarn around the ball as you would if you were winding a ball of wool. If your bauble has a little lip then tie around this first but if not don't worry. Make sure to wrap around evenly to insure the ball stays round and keep wrapping until whole bauble is covered. Cut yarn and tuck end of yarn under, securing with a spot of glue.
Thread your ribbon through the needle and draw through a decent amount of the yarn near the glued area ( around 8-10 pieces) tie a knot in the ribbon and secure with a bow.
Voila! You now have your own Jingle yarn ball!
I would love to see any you make so if you use this tutorial link back here so i can take a look :)
