Spiraled Yarn Circle Garland

Whoa.  Two posts in two days. Shocking. But I wanted to share this fun tutorial to make this happy little garland.  I shared it last week on Kimberly's blog...bugaboo, mini, mr. and me.  She has a great Yarn It All series going on sharing all things yarn.  It is awesome.

I have been drooling over all the colorful crochet garlands I see out there.  So I decided to make my own version without the awesome crochet skills but still all the pretty. I am excited to share it with all of you!

Here's what you do to start making cute little yarn circles with the help of some paper and glue...








It's pretty easy and quick too!  If you don't have a circle punch just trace and cut a circle with scissors. I suggest using card stock the same color as the yarn in case you have some gaps. Also, I find hot glue to be the easiest to work with since it dries so fast and keeps the yarn from un-spiraling. You just have to  be careful not to burn yourself.  I have worked with hot glue so much I think I no longer possess fingerprints. :) 
Here it is in my Spring Vignette that is still a work in progress. Fun!

Hugs and blessings!

  10. The vignette with the garland is beautiful. I think the yarn circles by themselves would make cute drink coasters too.

  19. So I think I am in love with these babies! I heart polka dots so much that these are right up my alley! I am trying to think what I could use them for...Annie's birthday perhaps? I think yes! I think maybe my own birtday! Then I could get Kate to kake them for me! I think they would store really nice! Now THAT I like too!

    Night my craft genius friend!!!!

  20. Hola
    Me encantan el proyecto! Solo que se me ocurre que se pueden emplear como portavasos individuales, podemos emplear estambre matizado o hilo de algodón.
    Gracias por la idea.
    Saludos!
