Making Yarn Bowls

UPDATED below with a pic of our finished product.

I saw this cute yarn bowl how to on Pinterest and I thought it would be just the thing to try this week while we have our annual Camp Conniewannahavefun [2].

Everyone chose some yarn and cut them into 8-10 inch lengths.

Those yarn pieces were then dunked into school glue, which I had poured onto a paper plate. The wet strips were then applied to a balloon.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the purple yarn bowl up there that was our inspiration may have been made by an adult, or someone older than 4.

Ours may not turn out exactly like that (we’ll see tomorrow), but the kids had fun doing it, and I’m sure they will be proud of their creations!

UPDATE:

Our yarn bowls didn’t turn out quite like we had hoped…

Maybe we didn’t soak them with enough glue??? Have you tried making yarn bowls? How did they turn out?
