Easy Yarn Ball Ornaments

Easy Yarn Ball Ornaments

“Make one and have a ball!”

This free pattern shows you how super easy it is to decorate your tree with mini yarn balls. Get festive with fiber!

We found these little pins that look like elf knitting needles! And this ribbon from Italy really enhances the look.

You'll also see some yarn suggestions below, but you could use just about any yarn in your stash.

They're so quick and easy that you can make a bunch in a single session, and then have a festive little hostess gift as you visit fellow knitters and crocheters this season.

Click on the Free Pattern tab to see our instructions for making these fun ornaments.

See the "Basic Details" tab for size and supply information.


Wind yarn into a neat, round ball approximately 1½"/3.75 cm in diameter. Cut yarn, leaving a 6"/15 cm tail. Thread yarn tail onto a tapestry needle and bury tail going in from bottom of ball and coming out top.

Fold ribbon in half; re-insert tapestry needle with yarn tail into ball from top to bottom, just catching the fold of ribbon when inserting. For extra security, bury tail one more time going in from bottom to top. Give yarn a firm tug and clip tail.

Tie ribbon ends into a neat overhand knot. Cross seaming pins through ball.
