I was inspired by images on Instagram from @houseofmarkla and @theleeleeshop to suggest this fun and sophisticated craft.  Visit their sites at House of Mark and The Lee Lee Shop.  They are easy to make and it’s fun to see where your creativity can take you with mixing yarns & sticks.  Here is a great tutorial from Homey Oh My blog about how to make a fringed wall hanging.

Make a Yarn-Yo.

They can also be used for wall hangings, garlands, as bookmarks, in planners, and more.  Here’s a Design*Sponge tutorial about how to make & add tassels to a blanket.

It’s easy to use your colorful yarn scraps to punch up plain brown gift wrap or to add softness to fancy gift wrap and ribbon.  Add tassels, pom poms, or yarn-yos for a greater impact.
