Yarn Art Fun

This was a fun project to do with a group of kids. Especially if you have a bunch of little bits of yarn leftover, asking to be used up.

Before you embark on yarn art fun here, check out how to make pom-poms.

I used a brass ring for one, and a dowel rod for another, both purchased in a local craft store.

I started by tying the yarn to the ring, and then proceeded to wrap/knot it around the brass ring.

Save some room for the yellow sunshine color.

The goal for the yellow is with every loop to make a ‘ray’ that reached up to the top of the circle.

Every time I made a ‘ray, I would loop the yarn on the inside to secure it, and went all the way until all the brass was covered in yarn.

I left a long blue and long yellow strand on each side instead of cutting them off. They will just become part of the hanging.

In between the gold rays, I added a bunch of light gray and yellow strands.

When it is all done, I gave it a haircut.

I made a bunch of pompoms. You could totally do it the ‘proper’ way, but I am lazy, so I just wrapped yarn around my fingers. When you make pompoms it is super helpful to have non-slip waxed thread (affiliate link).

I made white and gray for clouds, and some intense colorful ones for rainbow.


I also had some fun raindrop shaped beads to add.

Here is the one with the dowel rod. This one is easier. All I did was take three long strands at a time, until I filled the entire rod, then I gave them a haircut and decorated with pompoms, beads, and braids.
