25 Ornaments - Day 17

I had planned to have the kids make these tonight, but Gilly is sick, and after all the fighting earlier, I just never got around to it.

I'm thinking of having the kids do them this weekend at the Christmas party. Maybe. It'd be messy, though, so maybe not. Either way, I want to tackle these before Christmas.

 Rebecca & Maggie over at Homemade Mamas showed these off this morning, and they are just ever so cute!

These yarn balls couldn't be easier! Dip yarn in glue, and wrap it around a small inflated balloon. Let it dry 24 hours, then pop the balloon. The glue will stiffen and hold the yarn in shape. You can sprinkle glitter on the wet yarn, or do layers in multiple colors!

These could be super cheap to make, even if you have to buy all the supplies, given just how little yarn it takes to make each one. These would make for excellent add-in's to give packages this year!
