Everyone loved the Rope Balls I made recently but they can be a little tricky to make. So, for those who got frustrated with rope here is an much easier decorative ball to make, a simple yarn ball.
I squished together some newspaper to make a sphere about the size of a tennis ball and simply wrapped the yarn around it. When it was completely covered I just tucked the end in and hey presto a pretty ball.
The beauty of these decorative accents is that you can select any color or texture of yarn to compliment your decor and here they are in a contemporary glass vase with those lovely rope balls.

Lovely deco idea!
These would be fun for a little girl's party with a kitten theme! Love the rope balls. That looks like a monkey knot. I'll have to click over to the other post and check them out! Thanks for sharing!
Beautiful! The colors look great together!
Love these! I did off white ones on my mantel last year in the wintertime, after the holidays. Great texture!
Cool! I thought they were 100% yarn. Love the colors.
What a great idea. I have been collecting yarn over the years. Maybe thinking I would learn to knit. Well I know what I am going to do. Thanks
Funny how a simple idea can become something wonderful! Love the colors and texture!
I have some styrofoam balls I'm going to use. Thanks for the inspiration!
