Aren’t these the most adorable things?!
Such an easy way to bring in a pop of color, a unique texture, and bring in the yarn that I love so much!!!
If only it was an easy DIY project….
I saw these yarn balls very early on in my wedding planning escapades and fell.in.love. The only problem has been that I cannot make them. At all. I have tried 5 times, each time being unsuccessful.
Here’s a little montage of all of my yarn ball epic fails….
Please laugh out loud. This totally deserves it.
Typical starting picture… what I used, looks easy, right?
Don’t look too bad, right? This was round 1.
I mean, everyone loves lopsided balls, right?
Yes, I did try to pick away the extra glue. It was unsuccessful.
End of Round 1. I was a hot mess, minus the hot.
Round 3 – best looking ones yet, but somehow my black yarn turned white. And since this time, (3 months ago) they have totally unraveled.
Round 5 – more cornstarch, less glue to decrease the whiteness.
I wish I could express what these looked like. I was too angry to even take a picture. Deflated, sad, and frumpy. Yes, I’m talking about the balls, not my feelings about this craft.
I really, really, really, really wish I could have gotten this craft to work out. I absolutely love the look of them. However, I’ve just decided to use all the yarn I bought in a different way. At least it still looks good.
:::::sigh….maybe I’ll try again another time:::::
