The Yarn Ball On Display

The handmade movement has given birth not only to a plethora of handicrafts, but also to a host of creative reinterpretations of how to use crafting supplies. While I haven't had much luck in the knitting department myself, thankfully that doesn't mean my stockpile of yarn has to go to waste. Here are a few fun ideas...•1. I spotted these dangling balls of yarn on the Nie Nie Dialogues. It would be a great alternative to a mobile in a child's room or a lively addition to any empty corner that needs a fun splash of color. •2. For the black thumbs among us, a bloom that's impossible to neglect. •3. I love this simple tone on tone wreath idea from Dottie Angle. •4. Ok, this one's a bit extremem, but too fun not to share. A room divider for the serious craftsters with a serious amount of spare yarn.

What other crafting items have you found new creative uses for?
