Don’t knit or crochet? No problem! Here are two easy yarn crafts that only need your fingers! Come make a yarn pom-pom flower and yarn tassel wall hanging.
While I love to share knit and crochet patterns, there are plenty of yarn projects you can make that don’t require any skills or really any tools. For these two easy yarn crafts all you need is some yarn and your fingers (and a pair of scissors).
First up are these yarn flowers. I made two pom-poms, pushed them onto the ends of some floral wire (no gluing), and put them in a bud vase.
I made a video to show you how I make the flowers.
Just a couple of notes, I wrap the yarn around all four fingers when I make these pom-poms. I also wrap the yarn around my fingers about 100 times. (Yes, I usually count.)
When you’re tying the yarn around the center of the pom-pom I like to go around twice before pulling tight, it really helps to secure the knot.
And when you’re trimming and shaping your flower the closer you get to the center of the pom-pom the denser your flower will be. You can make your flower as dense or shaggy as you want. It’s all about what you like!
The other yarn project that doesn’t require and knitting or crochet skills is this Yarn Tassel Wall Hanging.
Here’s the video for how to make the tassels, and how I attached the tassels to my stick.
This stick in the finished picture is one from my yard that I sanded down. In the tutorial video I used a craft stick that I bought at the store. By tying the tassels to the stick in varying lengths you could make all kinds of different patterns and designs.
And don’t limit yourself to just one color! Make the flowers in two different colors. Make the wall hanging in a rainbow of colors. The possibilities are endless. You could even dip dye your tassels.
If you came to my class at Pinners Conference these are the two easy yarn crafts that we did at the conference! Thanks to all those who attended and to my incredible sister who filled in for me.
Also a big thank you to Oriental Trading for sponsoring the class and providing supplies! Did you know that Oriental Trading sells scissors and craft yarn?! They do! And it’s perfect for making these two crafts.
