I love sewing tips and hacks and this yarn flower that I came across on Youtube is no exception and it has quickly become one of my favorite fun things to make of all time. You only need a fork and some yarn, yes it’s that easy. Let me show you how to do it.
Long Embroidery Needle
Start by weaving your yarn through the fork.
Then keep weaving all the way to the end of the fork and thread the long remaining string onto your needle and lace it back through one side.
Then thread down through all the individual fork channels with your needle.
Then remove your yarn channels from the fork and tie off at one end making a petal shape. Now after you have made at least six petals join them all together with a piece of yarn.
Then join all the petals together at the sides as well fluffing them up and arranging these beautiful petals as you go. At the end, you can place a pearl or a small stone in the middle for your flower center (a button would also work very nicely).
This DIY yarn flower will provide hours of fun for bored kids on holidays. Since I found this little sewing project I keep a little stash of yarn and some sturdy plastic forks to hand to the kids if they are getting tired, fidgety and irritable. I just pop out the yarn and they all get to work and I don’t hear a peep for hours.
