Yarn Vases with Kids

This past week my daughter and I made these they were easy, messy and fun to do.  So it was a hit with her. 

Materials that we used were tennis ball containers, yarn, water, glue and paper towels.

We mixed water and glue together to make the glue last longer.  Then we dipped in a pre-cut length of yarn (there is no specific length its up to you).

Then we "squeezed" most of the water glue mixture out of the string.

Start wrapping the string around the container.  We started at the bottom of the container and it took a couple of tries to get it to stay at first but then we didn't have any problems.

Continue with the same color the whole way or switch colors.

When finished we let them dry overnight and they were set to go.  This week's project is to make paper flowers to go in them.
