You will need to make your yarn ball ornaments:

  • small foam balls (I bought my package from Michael's)
  • balls of yarn in a variety of colors (I bought a few balls from the Dollar Store)
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors
  • string
  • thumb tacks
  • other embellishments (rhinestones / pinbacks) (not pictured)

Step 2: Make the Hangings for Your Ornaments

First, measure out how much string you want for each ornament, then loop it over and hot glue it to the top, sticking a thumb tack on top to secure in place.

Step 3: Add the Yarn

Now, comes the fun part: adding the colorful yarn! To do this, place a dot of hot glue on one part of the foam ball, stick the yarn on top and wrap it around. You can use as many colors as you like. For my yarn balls, I used at least two colors. Make sure that you can cover most of the areas, even of there's some white showing.

You can also add some other embellishments, like crystals, rhinestones, studs, and even pins to really jazz up your yarn balls. I obviously didn't have time for that step at this point, but this is something that you can touch up on yourself!

Step 4: Now Hang!
