Activity: Yarn Arts and Crafts

Yarn is great for more than just knitting and crochet! Consider the following types of yarn art and crafts:

  • Add texture to a painting. If you’ve painted a portrait, glue yarn on for hair; for a painting of a tree, add different colors of yarn for tree bark and leaves. The opportunities are endless!
  • Create a decorative corkboard. Get a corkboard and pins. Place the pins in a shape you like — roses, stars, hearts, or otherwise. String yarn between the pins until the shape is filled with color!
  • Make a decorative wall hanging. Find a stick or get a strip of wood. Attach a rope or piece of yarn as a hanger, then drape long strands of yarn in multiple colors, securing them to the wood by tying.
  • Make your own dryer balls. Dryer balls can be just as effective as dryer sheets at minimizing static! They’re also very easy to make. Simply start the ball by wrapping yarn around your fingers; switch directions every now and then so you wrap the yarn around itself. Wrap the ball in the cut foot of a pair of nylons to keep it together in the wash.
