What’s really great about crafts made with yarn is that you can often make use of scraps of yarn leftover from knitting and crocheting and other such projects. It’s bright and colorful and incredibly versatile.
There are so many things that you can make from yarn and we’ve rounded up some of our favorites here. If you don’t have any scraps, be sure to check your local dollar store for inexpensive yarn in a variety of colors.
We’ve got some great finger knitting projects here. Check them out!
