Homemade Christmas :: Knitting Ornament

I wanted to share with you a quick, little DIY present I did for a friend of mine. A few days ago I saw her pin this and thought, "I could totally do that."
And for free :)
I already had all the supplies: an old ornament, pretty yarn, bamboo skewers, small balls (I used some from an old garland pic I had), and {of course!!} a hot glue gun.

Glue down one end of the yarn and start wrapping and gluing until you have something that resembles a ball of yarn.

Attach the balls to the skewers (cut to size) with glue, and place the knitting "needles" through the yarn. I used ribbon instead of a hook so it would look prettier:

And a little bit of wrapping to make it look nice:

In all this project took about ten minutes...totally worth it!
I'll be doing a few last minute Christmas gifts this weekend: stay tuned! Until then, I'll be back tomorrow with some of the projects we have been working on for all the class parties we have going on.
Happy Thursday!
