Craft Project - spaghetti yarn bowl


  • Large smooth plastic ball (ours was 14 inches wide)
  • Bowls to hold the ball and glue
  • Yarn or string (we used 240 feet)
  • White glue

3. Let the glue dry (overnight is good) before lifting the bowl from the ball. Clean the ball with soap and water.YarnCraft

1. Rest the ball on top of a bowl to steady it. Cut the yarn into about 80 yard-long pieces. Empty a generous amount of glue into a bowl.

2. Working with one strand at a time, submerge the yarn in the bowl of glue. Squeeze out the excess glue, then drape the yarn onto the top half of the ball, forming squiggles and loops. As you add more strands, cross the previously draped yarn multiple times.
