DIY Yarn Hat Ornaments
- Empty Paper Towel or Toilet Paper Roll
- Hardcover Book (my book measures 7-1/2″)
- 18″ ruler or tape measure
- Yarn used:
- Deborah Norville Collection Serenity Chunky Tweeds in Bordeaux (red) color
- Red Heart yarn in green tones color
Once your yarn is cut, set aside one strand for tying the hat.
Begin to wrap the yarn around the paper tube. You’ll fold the yarn in half, and place a simple slip knot around the tube.
Pull the knot snug and slide the two separated pieces together. Repeat until you’ve completely covered the paper tube.
Separate the strands of yarn in half.
Tuck one strand into the tube and the other. Pull gently to hide the knots under the tube and straighten the yarn.
You can make larger hats: cut card board (use a cereal box) and staple the circle together, then cover the staples with masking tape so the yarn does not snag on them. You can also fill the hat with tissue paper or a plastic bag to keep it standing up.
What do you think? Will you be making these for gifts this year? They would make adorable gift tie on ornaments – I love to do that. I’m going to make some more for my family. I think they’re adorable, easy and fun!
