Yarn ends

maRRose - CCC: yarnendsHaving played with yarn ends before (diy and links here) and finding the container that houses the snippets of my crochet filled to the brim, I played again and what delightful play it was!

I made two votives (using simple glasses as their molds) and a matching small bowl (see first photo).

  1. These are really lovely. I especially like the lamp shade. I am now saving my yarn ends to do something similar one day (shame I didn’t start earlier!) but they are mostly acrylic at present. Is it best to use acrylic or cotton but not both together?

    • Thank you so much, Jane! Great idea to be saving your yarn ends; no, cotton or acrylic does not really matter. The cotton ends seemed a bit easier to work with, but the acrylic-projects turned out nice as well. Good luck (and maybe send a photo? Would love to see!). Marianne xx

  2. They look totally amazing and I can’t wait to have a go. I’ve been saving my ends since I saw your first attempts, although I only have acrylic! I love the lampshade it looks fantastic xx
