Quick Bowl & Vase Fillers

Had some leftover yarn.

Had an empty bowl.

Filled it up FAST & FREE. (Same way I made my SNOWBALLS. You can see them HERE.)

You won't need as much yarn if you start with a ball formed from a plastic grocery bag. We all have lots of those, right?

Just start wrapping. . .

and continue wrapping. . .

until the grocery bag is covered. Cut your yarn and tuck the loose end under some of the wrapped yarn.

I started with a grocery bag wadded into a smaller ball for the second one to vary the size a bit. I also untwisted the yarn slightly on the second ball to give it a different look.

The variegated yarn was used on 4 other bag balls of various sizes - giving each a unique look. 

The 7th ball was created with the last bits of both skeins twisted together. That's the one on top.

Bowl filled. Mission accomplished.

I'm off to bake a triple batch of buttermilk rolls now - some for Thanksgiving - some for the freezer!

All is well in the Keweenaw.
