DIY Repurposing With Yarn

Sometimes I think I have the patience to knit, but about 10 minutes later I lose my patience. I have tried a few times, and have built up a good amount of yarn in my craft room, so I wanted to figure out another use for it!

Something else that I seem to have an abundance of…flower pots! I also like to pretend I have a green thumb, something else I need to work on! I love having flowers and fresh herbs around, so I continue to attempt to keep them around, and with that attempt, I have accumulated a good amount of flower pots.

When I am crafting, I love to try and use up some of the things that I already have around, and create something useful. So, I decided to combine my mix of yarn and flower pots!! I have to say, it turned out even cuter than I expected! We also tend to used wine bottles readily available at our house, so that was on my list as well. Who knew that just a touch of yarn could make something so pretty?


Flower pots, wine bottles, or something similar

Mod Podge

Paint brush

Hot glue gun



*Apply a small dot of glue to the bottom of the flower pot and attach the yarn to the dot of glue

*Apply some mod podge to the flower pot with the paint brush, then wrap the yarn tightly around the pot over the mod podge

*You can start at the top or the bottom of the pot, either way works!

*Continue until the pot is covered; you can play a bit here by covering the entire pot, using different colors, or leaving part of the pot uncovered

*Attach the last bit of yarn to the pot with a touch hot glue

*Allow to dry
