Yarn Pencil Holder




Introduction: Yarn Pencil Holder

I made this thing as a school project. It looks crappy in the picture but it is actually useful. I didn't make mine big because I did not have that much yarn to work with. If you make this, I am sure that it will be better. I am just a messy person, which is why mine is not looking so good. It may not be creative but hey, I am not a creative person.

The Things You Need

  1. Yarn
  2. Bottle
  3. Parchment Paper
  4. Hot Glue Gun (WARNING: This is HOT. BE CAREFUL)
  5. Tape (Optional)

Make sure you read the instructions first before finding these items.

Have Fun Making This!!!!!

Step 1: First Step

Cut out a square of parchment paper and two big strips. Get a bottle that you would like to be the size of your holder. Place the bottle on the square and make a circle, using it. Remove the bottle and place a dot in the middle of your circle.

Step 2: Second Step

Cover the sides with the parchment paper (Warning: If you are going to tape it, tape it on the inside. The glue will attach to the tape, but not to the paper)

Step 3: Third Step

With your hot glue gun, glue the end of the yarn you chose to the dot. (Do NOT cut out a long piece of yarn, you need to have a continuous thread) Circle the yarn around the end of the yarn, gluing it flat to the paper as you go.

Step 4: Fourth Step

Once the Circle is filled, make sure that the yarn is flat on the paper. (Make sure that the circle is big enough to place the bottle on it and that the outer layer of the yarn circle is visible) Wait a few minutes for the glue to fully harden. After that time, take the yarn circle of the paper and check for crack or holes and fill those in with the glue, wait another few minutes for that to harden. Place the yarn circle back on the paper (it doesn’t matter if its on the circle on the paper)

Step 5: Fifth Step

Taking the yarn string, glue one layer on top of the outer yarn lines. Wait for it to harden, then place the bottle inside, making sure that the parchment is flat against the first layer of the yarn wall. Start circling the yarn around the bottle, gluing as you go. Make sure that the yarn layers are tight against each other.

Step 6: Sixth Step

Continue doing this until your yarn wall is as high as you want it to be. Cut the yarn string and wait for the glue to harden.

Step 7: Seventh Step

Once harden, pull the bottle out, leaving the parchment paper behind. (If you had put tape on the outside, the glue would have stuck to it and its hard to remove the tape once the yarn is glued on) Check the walls and make sure that there is no holes or openings anywhere (Fill in with glue if there is a hole)

Step 8: Eighth Step

Carefully remove the parchment paper, peeling it off the inner walls. Once removed, leave the yarn holder alone to harden. After it has harden, it ready to be used. Congratulations, you now have a Yarn Holder.
