It is day TWO of the series, A Kid’s CREATIVE Spring Break and I am super excited to be sharing these yarn projects. I love them because they use that leftover yarn from larger projects to make darling things that are useful. We happen to have an abundance of yarn from various projects but if you don’t, a quick trip to the craft store (we love Michaels Stores) will fix this. We frequent the craft stores and to be honest, we usually leave with yarn in our bag. Spring break can be a fabulous time for sharing creative projects with kiddos when the schedule is pressure free and the imagination can run wild. I love these projects so much!
The pom pom garland is a blast to create. You start with yarn.
To make the pom poms, there are a variety of tools out there. Follow the directions that go to your tool.
Once the pom poms are made and trimmed, string them together with a large plastic needle and a long strand of yarn. Ta Da!
The finished pieces is great to decorate your pets. Ha ha ha. I had to do it.
It is also a a fantastic garland for your book basket.
I think it is adorable on the kitty tower too and I promise you, Mogi LOVES all things yarn.
When you trim your pom poms, save your trimmings!
I painted a wooden plaque black with Apple Barrel paint from Plaid Crafts and added a glue heart with Aleene’s Turbo Tacky.
I dumped on the trimmings and let it dry. Add a braided yarn handle and yippee….home decor for the win! Isn’t it fun on the game cabinet.
Yesterday I shared these amazing Spring Break cereal bar snacks with Cherry Man.
I saved the jar.
Wrap it up in yarn and make a pretty flower and you have yet another darling project! I used my flower die from Ellison Education to cut the flower out of felt from Kunin Group. I love this so much because the felt is make from recycled bottles which makes this a complete recycled project win!
Cheers to special dedicated time for making things and supporting kids being creative!
