How To Make a Yarn Lovers Ornament

Know some yarn lovers?  I do, I do!  Make this fun and super easy ornament to proclaim your love of yarn this holiday season.  Hang it on the tree or use it to adorn a package too!  This is a great project to use up all of those end of the year yarn and craft leftovers and is a project kids can do all by themselves as well!

Need a little extra help?  There's a full video tutorial too!

Yarn Lovers Ornament
By Jennifer Dickerson

Click below to watch the full video tutorial:

  • Yarn scraps of your choice (I used Red Heart Super Saver in "Spring Green" "Paddy Green" "Cherry Red, and "White")
  • Clear plastic or glass ornament (plastic is a bit safer and sturdier, but you can use either)
  • Scissors
  • Pointy object like a pencil, or knitting needle to stuff yarn into ornament's opening
  • Ribbon for hanging
  • Optional Embellishments: ribbon, buttons, pom poms, gems, etc.

  1. Carefully remove the top of the ornament.  
  2. Clip yarn if needed to give it a "mixed up" look.
  3. Stuff into the ornament.
  4. Stuff anything else you may have like pom poms, buttons, ribbon scraps, etc.  Clean out that craft room for the new year!
  5. Replace cap.
  6. Cut a piece of ribbon and tie on for a hanging loop.
  7. Optional: With a paint pen or Sharpie, you can add a person's name to the front too!  This is especially nice is you use it as a gift tag and the recipient can hang it on the tree later.
Happy holiday crafting lovelies!
