Crafting with Leftovers

Balls, Balls, Balls! I love DECO BALLS! The possibilities are ENDLESS with these puppies!
I had a few leftovers from my Easter Tree Ornaments and Wire Hanger Easter Tree and wanted to put them to good use.

This is what you'll need. All I had to buy were the styrofoam balls.

1. Tie a double knot at then end of the yarn and poke a pin through it. Now wrap, baby wrap!

2. This is what it will look like. Couldn't I have just used a ball of yarn to get the same effect? Oh Well! :) Tie another double knot when you're done and poke another pin through the knot. You can hide the head of the pin by covering it with the yarn.

3. Do the same thing with the green yarn.

4. A moss of a mess! Just use your glue gun!

AND Voila!!!

Use to adorn a rabbit.

They make a great candlestick topper - my personal favorite.

OR stagger on a bookcase!

Hi,

I found you over at New Friend Friday! Your title "Decor Balls" caught my attention right away because I love 'em and I'm always looking for new ones. The fuzzy yarn one is my favorite...I'm gonna go raid my daughter's yarn cabinet. If you have a minute you can check mine out here:
