Valentines Yarn Ball Garland

I look forward to each changing season, holiday and special occasion, because it means I get to redecorate!  And I love redecorating!  I especially love to do our mantel, because it is the focal point of our living space.  With Valentines Day just around the corner, I have been trying to think of new ways to spice up our space.

So I went searching and found some loveliness!  I found a wreath at the blog Buggie and Jellybean, that took my breath away!  (I know, it’s shocking that I found a wreath I love, what with my wreath addiction and all!)  I absolutely loved the colours and the yarn balls.  I have a thing for yarn balls.  I’ve used them on my Christmas wreath, and I also just used white ones as snowballs on my Winter Mantel. I ran with the inspiration, and decided to take my own twist to it, and create a Valentine Yarn Ball Garland for my mantel.  I really like how it turned out!

Now, I know that my mantel looks bare, but keep in mind that this is only the first stage of my Valentines Mantel Reveal!

Lining up the yarn balls and pom-poms, getting them ready to attach.
I tied the large balls on first, then filled in the spaces with the remaining balls, using the glue gun.
Adding the finishing touches:  sparkly hearts and ribbons.

  2. Adorable! Thank you for sharing! I thought about doing something similar in all white and cream yarns for my dinning room hutch with all my white serving pieces! I think you may have just made up my mind! :)Found you on Funky Junk!

  3. This is GENIUS! Seriously! I wouldn’t have thought of it! I love how you used the foam balls for the core. It turned out beautifully, and I can’t wait to see what else you come up with!

  7. super cute! I have been on a yarn ball kick also – this is a great way to use them without just putting them in a vase! Great idea. I saw this on CSI
