Picture of DIY Fun Yarn Art

I bought yarns to learn how to crochet and knit but it didn't work that way! I think I'm too lazy for crocheting and knitting. But the yarns had to be useful so I though of doing some yarn art. I've seen fiber art, yarn art before but didn't know much about it. I had fun doing yarn art and loved how they turned out :)

Step 1: Materials Needed

Picture of Materials Needed
To make yarn art you'll need:

1) Yarns (different colors),
2) White paper,
3) White glue or hot glue (I used white glue),
4) Cotton swab (for applying glue on paper),
5) Scissor,
6) Pen or pencil.

Step 2: Basics

If you're not familiar with yarn art then you should try out these easy shapes or patterns. Once you get handy with these patterns you can do yarn art easily and create different designs.
I've selected 9 different (easy) shapes for yarn art, I hope the step-by-step tutorial is helpful.

I used white glue for sticking the yarn on paper and cotton swab for applying glue on paper (over the design).

*Don't apply glue over the whole paper at once. Apply glue only on the pattern on which you'll be sticking yarn and after completing   that pattern go for another one.

*Don't forget to carefully tap the glued yarn on paper with your finger to flatten it.

*Glue yarn from the middle or corner of any pattern.

*To create perfect corners you'll have to cut the yarn every time the yarn reaches a corner rather than folding the yarn (see triangle,     square, lens, tear drop...).

*To fill small blanks or patterns cut the yarn into small manageable pieces.

*Last but not the least, make sure the color combination is good.

In few easy words, all you need to do is- draw a design and stick yarn over the design :p
You may come up with your own technique for yarn art while you're working.

These are awesome! Nice work!

Or you could just not draw a design and make up a design as you go.
