Use up those scrap bits of yarn and make a Scrappy Christmas Ball ornament. Cover clear or old Christmas Balls with scrap super bulky yarn. For worsted weight yarn, I suggest making a chain before gluing. This is a quick and easy project

Scrappy Christmas Ball:

You will need a Christmas Ball for this project. Use a clear ball or cover an old Christmas ball. You can use any size. I used a ball with an approximate diameter of 2.75″.

For quick and easy coverage, use super bulky weight yarn. If you only have worsted weight yarn, you can crochet a long chain and glue the chain to the ball.

Scrappy Christmas Ball

Start by placing a dab of glue on the yarn. Stick it in the centre of the ball, opposite the hanger. Glue around the yarn and work the yarn around in a spiral. Continue to work sections of glue, gluing the yarn as you go. Cover the entire ball. Trim the yarn and add an ornament hook.

I’m so happy with how my Christmas Tree turned out. I added wooden bead garland and a few pinecone ornaments. Not only do these ornaments look beautiful on a Christmas tree, but they make the perfect present toppers as well. The decorations vary in skill level, and some can be made with no crochet experience. That way, the entire family can get involved. I used my Easy C2C Blanket for my Tree Skirt and the plaid blanket will be coming to my shop soon. If you love my Christmas Sweater you can get it HERE and my skirt HERE.
