I’m sure you have all seen the yarn-wrapping trend going on pretty much everywhere. I had done some yarn-wrapped wreaths before on this site, and I’ve also sold some on Etsy. Yarn wrapping wreaths is great fun, but it is also a tedious and long process. I’ve always been bad at delayed gratification projects, and yarn wrapping wreaths is definitely a delayed gratification project.
Then…some other yarn-wrapped goodies popped up in my Reader from some other blogs. Oh the ideas! Yarn wrapped bangles, yarn wrapped headband, luminaries, earrings, vase, trees, branches, pens, picture frames, letters, hangers, and on and on. The ideas just kept coming. And for projects much smaller than a wreath, I could have a project completed in no time!
Last night I made 8 yarn wrapped bangles (1 pink, 2 teal, 1 yellow, 1 blue/yellow, and 3 brown) and added some extra buttons and felt flowers for good measure. I was so proud of myself- 8 entire bangles finished in only 3 episodes of Pawn Stars Season 2 (Chumlee cracks me up). I woke up, saw how cute the bangles turned out, and made 2 yarn-wrapped headbands.
What will I wrap next? I’m eying a pair of old earrings, some aluminum cans to use as outdoor luminaries, a vase, the cat, an old picture frame, a lamp shade. I’ll let you know how those projects turn out!
(just kidding about the cat.)
