How I Made A Yarn Christmas And Globe Ornament | Posh Pooch Designs

Merry Christmas!
I want to show you how I made a 
Yarn Globe and Christmas Ornament.
Super easy and fun to give away!
Grab all your Yarny friends and make a bunch!

See the Video on my Youtube channel 
at this LINK


It is really easy and only takes a few supplies.
 You can purchase the plastic globe or ornament at your local Walmart or Hobby Lobby.

I used Lion Brand Bon bon yarn. and rolled them into small balls.
I then made a small swatch of the same yarn.
I crocheted a bottom for my globe.
 And put everything inside the globe.
It has a nice big opening so lots of fun things
 can easily be put inside.
DO NOT ADD WATER!
Close the bottom and add a decorative bottom if desired.

 The ornament opening is smaller and you
 will need to roll the balls smaller.
Most of the things will still fit inside, you will 
just have to scrunch them up a bit.

Things to add to the Ornament and Globes;
 yarn balls
small knitting needles 
small crochet hook
Stitch markers
Pins
 Buttons
Charms
Beads
 Glitter
Fake snow
The perfect gift for all your yarn Friends!
