There are lots of things you can make with yarn that don’t require you to crochet or knit. Which is great because I’m not very good at either, but I love yarn crafts. Yarn is a great craft item because it’s super easy to work with and doesn’t cost that much (unless you’re buying skein after skein, instead of just one). Yarn is a great thing for kids to mess around with too because they can make some pretty spectacular stuff without making a gigantic mess. So, without further ado, here is my list of things you can make with yarn. Let it inspire you and get you started, but feel free to come up with your own cool stuff too.
1. Yarn Dolls
I was completely enchanted when I was a kid and my mom taught me to make yarn dolls. That’s why they top my list of fun things you can make with yarn. To make one, cut about 35 lengths of yarn of equal lengths, about 1 ½ feet long. Remove five strings and set them aside. Fold the entire bundle of yarn in half and tie one of the strings around the entire bundle about an inch or so from the fold. This is the doll’s head. Next separate out two arms and two legs of about eight strings each. Use your remaining strings to tie the ends of the arms and legs. For a girl doll, you can skip the legs and leave the bottom to look like a dress.
