Yarn Balls.

Yarn balls or string balls, they’ve become home decor essentials since forever. They are available here there everywhere, from your side table to wall hanging you can see them all around. They are just simple and beautiful. But if you’re willing to go and buy them from any shop, it can cost you pretty much depending on piece you’re about to buy. Well! here is a deal, what about making them by yourself in just few bucks? Here are the instructions to make these simplest but ridiculously trendy yarn balls.

Are you Ready?

Things You Need:


  • Some Yarn Balls
  • White Glue
  • Balloons
  • Petroleum Jelly/Vaseline Original
  • Bowl
  • Scissors

What to do:

  1. Blow your balloons to the size you like your balls to be.
  2. Apply petroleum jelly on balloon (a very thin layer).
  3. Take some glue in a bowl.
  4. Dip yarn in it.
  5. Hold edge of the string between your fingers, stick it to the top of balloon and start wrapping it all around the balloon. (cover maximum area of balloon and make sure to take off excess glue from yarn while wrapping it).
  6. Leave it overnight to dry
  7. Prick the balloon and let it deflate, and take the balloon out of the ball.

Here you go! My ‘Yarn Balls’ are ready! What about yours?
