Yarn Wrapped Ball Ornament

Items needed for this project

Use craft glue for this project. The hot glue gun is not recommended for this project because the glue gets messy and its hard to create a clean look with glue drips.  Apply glue to the top of the styrofoam.  Attach the yarn to the top being sure to apply pressure to the yarn.  You don’t want the yarn to slide out of place.   Apply glue to the ball as you go and continue wrapping the yarn around the ball.  Feel free to mix and match colors.  Cut a little extra yarn at the oppisite end.  Glue it to the center to create a loop for hanging.  Allow time for the glue to dry before hanging.   place pics here
