Yarn Sculpture Bowl
This is a wonderful way to use up those scraps of yarn!
I am teaching a kids craft class this week at the Community Center and this is what we are making....a yarn sculpture bowl! This is such a fun activity for anyone age 2 - 92! You really get to get all sticky with glue and just make a real mess! Isn't that half the fun of creating art?
This is really easy to do: Materials needed are a blown up balloon, 2 disposable bowls, yarn, scissors, and glue (I used Elmer's Glue)..
First, blow up the balloon and set it tied side down into the bowl. (This just keeps the balloon in an upright position and allows your hands to be free to create your magic.)
next, cut many pieces of yarn, at different lengths...cut more than you think you will need.
Then pour a good amount of glue into the remaining bowl. Dip each piece of yarn into the glue and place over the top of the balloon in any pattern you choose. Just make sure that the pieces of yarn overlap eachother.
When you have completed your design...allow the glue to dry overnight. After glue is completely dry pop the balloon and remove it .....and your masterpiece is complete!
