25 modern yarn crafts to DIY

yarn diy

Yarn. I know a lot of us have a love/hate relationship with the stuff, especially if you’ve tried (and failed) to knit or crochet. I, myself, went through a knitting phase after my sweet sister-in-law gave me a beginning knitting kit many birthdays ago. I made an assortment of potholders (for practice) and scarfs (given away as gifts), and while I enjoyed the process, alas, knitting wasn’t where my crafty heart lie. Nonetheless, I am always amazing at how many fabulous yarn tutorial are out there–especially ones, and these are my favorite, where no knitting/crocheting experience is required. I’ve gathered a bunch of my favorites, and am excited to share them with you today!

One of the things I love most about celebrating holidays is putting together easy decor and creating fun recipes that my family and guests can enjoy. Wanting to put a “twist” on my Fourth of July decor this year, I created printable decor and invitations, a festive snack mix, a creative wreath and more, all inspired by Twizzlers Twists and Twizzlers Pull N Peel. Scroll through this post for creative inspiration, links to download your own free printables, and an easy Fourth of July wreath tutorial!

How adorable are these flag cupcakes? I took store-bought cupcakes, blueberries and Twizzlers Pull N Peel to create these little cuties. They took less than 10 minutes and add such a festive touch to the tablescape.

This snack mix was such a fun treat to create. I took a variety of red, white and blue snacks, added some Twizzlers Bites, and voila…an easy and yummy snack mix that I know will be a hit!

And now, can we talk about how much I love this wreath?

All you need is two packs of Twizzlers Pull N Peel, a foam wreath form, scissors and a hot glue gun:

twizzler wreath
Step 1: Take a piece of the candy, and separate it into three sections of three, making sure to get one red piece, one blue piece and one white piece in each section.

Step 2: Take your wreath form and wrap it in a piece of solid-colored fabric (I chose red).

Step 3: Now the fun begins! One at a time, wrap a section of candy around your wreath form, securing the ends on the back with hot glue. Repeat all the way around your wreath.

Halfway through!

Almost done! Because the circumference of the outside of the wreath form is larger than the inside, they’ll be a bare spot at the top of your wreath. Just use this spot for either a bow or for hanging your finished wreath.

To finish off the wreath, I took white foam stickers and decorated the bottom left side of the wreath.
