20 Projects That Use Yarn

Last week, we rounded up our favorite DIYs that use clay. Today’s craft supply of choice is … drum roll please … yarn. We’ve included a mix of wall decor, accessories, wreaths, pillows, and more to share with you—keep scrolling for some crafty ideas!First on our list is this easy wall hanging made from a beaded placemat. As for the more the yarn—the more colorful the better!

Make your own set of wool dryer balls. These help with drying time and you can add essential oils to them to make your laundry smell extra good!

We love this textured weaving that can be made in an afternoon.

This macrame curtain DIY is one of our most popular posts! It’s like the grown up version of a ’70s beaded curtain. Both sound cool, honestly.

Make your own pom poms and glue them to a photo frame for some added color and texture.

Make a cozy, chunky woven scarf to wear this autumn and winter.

This wall hanging makes a big statement and it’s super easy to make.

Mandi’s plush animal mat is sooo adorable. This is one of those projects that takes a little more time to finish, but it’s so worth it!

It’s never too early for holiday decor ideas—especially this time of year. Emma’s yarn wreath can be customized many ways, but we really love that big red bow. Click here for more wreath making ideas!

Katie’s wall hanging is more like a “hack” because it’s so simple to make—definitely one of those crafts you can make while watching TV.

Old school library cards make the best bookmarks. We included a free printable in the post so you can easily make some for yourself. Emma added yarn tassels to the tops of hers to make them extra fancy. 🙂

Bunny ears! There really isn’t a cuter wreath for Easter.

Not sure what to do with “that one” blank wall in your house? Add some macrame garland like this one made from yarn.

The cutest Christmas trees for a mantle or table. You could make a bunch of these and give them as gifts, too!

This graphic embroidered art DIY is really cool! So many options with this one, too.Have you tried needle felting? This DIY is really fun (and sweet) to make.

Rachel made a simple backdrop using a dowel rod, yarn, and fresh mandarins. This would make a fun photo backdrop, too!

We’re getting all ’70s feels from this faux latch hook wall hanging.

A weaving and a pillow?! You can combine both with this yarn fringe pillow DIY.

A few of our readers have tagged us on Instagram after making this braided wall hanging DIY and it really makes us happy. Keep them coming!
