You know those yarn leftovers that just sit in your stash because there isn’t quite enough for a whole project. Here are some mini project ideas to make the most of them:
1. DIY Wrapped Earrings by Flax and Twine for the Creature Comforts Blog
These earrings are so simple to make but create a big impact. This tutorial uses embroidery thread, but we think these would work well with some leftover yarn too.
2. Playful Leftover Yarn Mittens
Why not mix and match your leftover yarns together for a pair of mittens. We love that each hand is different in these playful pairs.
3. Woven Bangles by My Poppet Makes
Woven bangles to match the earrings?
4. Colourful Clockwork Cosy by Inger
How about using up those leftovers to give your clock a makeover.
5. Yarn Wrapped Block Printing
Definitely not just for kids. Wrap some yarn around a wooden block to make some creative wrapping paper, gift cards or a print for your walls.
6. Scraps for the Birds
This is a good one for those really small scraps of yarn. Pop them in a bird feeder for the birds to collect and add to their nests.

There we go, some jewellery, a jumper for your clock and something for the birds! How do you use up your yarn leftovers?
