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!

mod podge vase {a tutorial}

mod podge crafts

 

Playing with watercolors the other day, I decided to take a chance and try to create a watercolor vase using Mod Podge. I’m so glad I did, I love how this turned out!

Materials:
Mod Podge Gloss
2 glass containers (one to fit inside the other)
Foam Brush
Watercolors
Watercolor Paper
Paintbrush

decoupage

 Step 1: Gather your supplies and cut a piece of your watercolor paper to fit inside your glass jar. The best glass jars not tapered; they have straight sides. This will help make adhering the paper inside the jar easier. You’ll also need a smaller jar to fit inside the larger jar. I found both of my jars at Hobby Lobby for under $4!

Step 2: Use your watercolors to paint your paper. You could also do this project with scrapbook, wrapping or leftover wallpaper!

I’m not a watercolor expert, but I’ll try to talk you through what I did:) I started by applying shades of blue and green across the paper, using plenty of water.

Then, I went back and added swashes of color, blending as I went and adding more water as needed to help the colors blend together. Let dry completely.

Step 4: Once dry, take your smaller jar and insert it into your larger one. Since Mod Podge isn’t waterproof, you won’t want to add water directly to your vase.

Cut your flower, insert into your vase, and you’re done! I really love how this turned out; the colors are perfect for my decor, and I always love an excuse to buy fresh flowers.
