These cross stitch letters are a great way to teach kids to sew! Not only are they learning to cross stitch but also expressing themselves! These letters are the perfect confidence builder for beginner stitchers!

Friendship bracelets are a great yarn craft.  Do you remember making them when you were younger? Bracelet making by far was one of my favorite crafts!  I love the colorful strings, different patterns, and beautiful braids and knots.

You dont’ need much yarn for this. A dream catcher is a fun project. You can make it for wall decor or to hang from your bed to catch all your bad dreams.



Need unique craft ideas? Make an adorable pom pom bouquet. Once you learn how to make a pom pom you can make all sorts of cute things with pom poms.

Did you make yarn dolls as a kid? All you need is a little yarn, scissors and cardboard to make these adorable dolls. This project is a little more difficult so reserve it for older kids.

Make a God’s eye craft. They are the perfect mess-free kids’ craft! This project is also a great way to use up all those yarn balls. I learned how to make these in Sunday school.

Heart string art. So fun and bright, and a simple shape so it’s not a complicated string art… You can make this great project super easy.

Ombre monogrammed letter. Monogrammed letters are a great party decoration that looks fantastic on a dessert table spelling out the birthday girl or boys name. They even look cute on a shelf. Just start wrapping the yarn.

These DIY woven bangles look great worn as a stack, so make a few that coordinate together. If you can’t get wooden bangle blanks, you can buy plastic bangles at the thrift store and refashion them. These make a great gift.

These DIY Pom pom Flip Flops can be made in just an afternoon! This is a fun kids activity perfect for parties or lazy summer days.


What do you use yarn for? Yarn projects are usually made sewing, crocheting, knitting, weaving, embroidery, or rope making. What is your favorite way to use yarn? I love to crochet!

What is the softest yarn? The softest wool is cashmere, but as you can imagine it is pretty expensive. Alpaca or bamboo yarns are super soft and a bit more affordable.

What is the best yarn for a baby blanket? Making a baby blanket?  I prefer acrylic, cotton, or other non-wool yarns for babies. It’s very soft, breathable and won’t bother even the most sensitive skin.
