DIY Yarn Scrap Ornaments

DIY Yarn Scrap Pom Poms The Neon Tea Party

One of the most common questions I get when teaching pom pom workshops is “what do you do with all those beautiful scraps?!” The truth is, I’ve been hoarding bags and bowls and tupperwares of them while I figure out what the heck I want to make. (Side note: Sam has been very confused as to why he can’t find a single medium-sized mixing bowl to cook with. Little does he know they’re stacked in the window sill filled with pom pom scraps…)

One idea I’ve been holding onto for the holiday season is the one I’m sharing today: DIY yarn scrap ornaments! This project seriously could not be easier. Simply conserve your pom pom and tassel scraps, stuff them into clear glass ornaments and top off each ornament with a tassel to match! This project looks especially smart when you use the scraps from your holiday garlands, gift toppers, etc. to create filled ornaments to match – genius!

YOU’LL NEED:

Remove the metal top of your ornament and fill to your liking. I filled my ornaments sparsely so you can see the top texture of the scraps, but they’d look equally fun filled all the way!

Next, make a tassel for each ornament using a yarn color from the scrap palette – it’s a fun way to help the colors in your ornament pop. Make your tassels on the narrow side of your Loome tool following the video instructions in our online pom pom & tassel master class.

Connect a tassel to each ornament using a jump ring and flat nose pliers, and voila!

Another fun use for your extra scraps: make colorful “snow” to sprinkle around your small trees and holiday villages on display!

You guys have no idea how much it pains me not to have a tree to deck out, being the nice Jewish girl that I am. So please do me a favor and take advantage of this fun ornament idea for us both! Then post pics and tag @theneonteaparty so I can see. 😉

This is my last DIY blog post for 2018 — I can’t even believe it!! Maybe I’ll sneak in some closing thoughts before we ring in the new year, but in the meantime, I’m looking forward to planning lots of beautiful and educational content for you guys in 2019. Think: better photos, more videos, guest contributors and lots and lots of fun ideas for you to try at home. I can’t hardly wait!!!

Wishing all those celebrating a very merry Christmas and a very happy new year to all!!!!

Peace, love & neon,

Marisa

  • Raise your hand if you too are in full-on @mariekondo mode 🙋🏻‍♀️ Today we tackled books (among a few other odds and ends) and slowly but surely little corners of our small and totally overstuffed apartment are coming together. 🙏🏼 I wish so badly I could just put life on hold for a week or two and finish all at once 😕 but instead I’m setting aside significant time each weekend + the occasional week night and won’t stop until this place is totally pared down. 👊🏼
.
For us that means there will still be lots of tchotchkes and things BUT everything will be loved and have a home. That’s the plan and this time I’m sticking to it! 🙌🏼 Now you all have to hold me accountable 😂😂
.
If you’re KonMaring your home too, feel free to share below any tips and strategies for getting it all done so we can all help each other out! 💥

  • My greatest joys as a crafting educator are making new friends and providing others with an opportunity to add a bit of creativity to their day! 💥
.
This was my approach at our first two-day, totally FREE make-and-take activation in partnership with @artistsandfleas! Popping up with our mini God’s Eye workshop was a wonderful opportunity to invite new people into the world of The Neon Tea Party, offer a chance to learn a new skill and continue to get TNTP’s name out there. 😊
.
Swipe through to see many of the gorgeous God’s Eye weavings our new friends made! I just love how each color combo is so different. 😍
.
A HUGE thank you once more to @artistsandfleas for providing TNTP the opportunity to connect with their community!!! It’s been an honor! 🧡 .
