D.I.Y. Yarn Bowl

A yarn bowl makes a great festive piece for a table setting, and perfect for holding goodies, such as candy. It also makes a great kids craft!

Crafted by Kellie.


  • Thin Cotton Yarn or Embroidery Floss
  • Balloons
  • Bowl
  • Craft Glue
  • Newspaper
  • A Cup
  • Ribbon (optional)
  • Scissors 

  1. Blow up the balloon to a size you would like your bowl to be.
  2. Set the balloon, tied side down, into a cup. The cup will act as a pedestal to hold your balloon as you place the yarn onto it.
  3. Layout newspaper under and around the cup.
  4. Place an adequate amount of glue into the bowl.
  5. Use the scissors to cut yarn about a foot long or more (depending on the size of your bowl). You can cut different colors of yarn to create a colorful yarn bowl.
  6. Dip a string of yarn into the glue, then wrap it around the balloon.
  7. Continue step until you have the desired look.
  8. Let it dry overnight.
  9. Once dry, use a needle to pop the balloon and carefully peel the balloon from the yarn.
  10. You can tie a ribbon to the bowl or embellishment it.
