Fun DIY Yarn Ideas You Can Try Right Now

by Boris Dzhingarov on Aug 28, 2017

Yarn is very versatile and you can use it for many kinds of DIY projects. You can create decorative ornaments to give your home’s interior a makeover and you can use it to personalize your items. Additionally, you can find all the different types of yarn online too. Here are some of our suggestions:

Party Table Decor

If you would like to give your party table décor a more unique and interesting look, you can use yarn; the process is quite simple. Just apply some glue and wrap the yarn around your cutlery. You can use multiple colors to make it more attractive, and you can even try to make your own designs and patterns. But take note that you’ll need to remove all that yarn after the party.

Bottles Wrapped in Yarn

With this material, you can make a gorgeous vase for your fresh flowers. Find a clean glass bottle, and pick attractive colors of yarn. Then apply glue all over the bottle and start wrapping it with yarn. Snip the end of the yarn and you’re all set.

Yarn Lampshade

Yarn can be used to give your bedroom fixtures a makeover. You can, for example, change the color and look of your lampshade to alter the mood in your bedroom. Select the yarn color you want and wrap the cover of the lampshade. Use more than one color and try to create a nice pattern. Keep your work clean and when you reach the bottom, snip the excess yarn.

Storage Tins Covered in Yarn

One of the best ways to keep your home clean is to neatly organize your things. You need to have a place to keep your belongings. With storage containers, your home won’t look messy. But you shouldn’t just stop there. You can make your storage containers colorful and pretty using yarn. Gather some old tins, and then prepare your yarn, scissors and glue. Apply glue on the tin’s exterior and begin wrapping the yarn starting at the bottom. Be as creative as you can with the design/pattern.

Canvas Wrapped in Yarn

You can use canvas to add a nice decorative element to your home. Canvas wrapped in yarn can be a piece of art that you can proudly display in your living room. You will only need yarn, canvas and scissors for this. It’s best to use multiple colors so you can personalize your patterns.

Pendant Lights with Yarn

You can make an exquisitely designed pendant lamp on your own using yarn, a bowl, a medium-sized beach ball, Vaseline, glue, water, newspaper, corn starch and spray paint. Mix the water, glue and the cornstarch and use the mixture to coat the yarn. Then wrap the yarn around the beach ball and set aside for at least an entire day. Punch some holes in the beach ball and then take it out through the bottom opening. Then use your spray paint for a splash of color.

Wall Art with Yarn

Accessories and decorations can enhance the cozy feel of your home. You can create beautiful wall art with yarn, and lots of it. You also need a sturdy string to keep all the yarn together. We recommend that you pick different colors to make your wall art more striking. There are lots of patterns and ideas you can find online for this project.

So there you have it! Yarn may be very popular for crocheting and knitting but it can be used for many other purposes. Make your DIY projects fun and inexpensive by using yarn that you can conveniently purchase on the Internet.
