As you saw in the tablescape design, shot by Jill Thomas, these chargers were all the hit!
Yarn Charger Materials:
- Large plastic charger (Or inexpensive plastic plates)
- Yarn of your choice! (The thicker the less time it takes..hint, hint)
- Tape + Scissors.
Step 1: Start by securing one end of the spool of thread with scotch tape on one side of the plate. You may need another piece of two just to get you started.
Step 2: Begin spinning the yarn around the charger from top to bottom. The key here is to pull it tight. The wider you get, the more likely you’re winding of thread will begin to slip. Once you reach that point, stop and cut the yarn and secure with a piece of tape.
Step 3: Repeat Step 2 but at another starting point on the plate.
Step 4: Continue to repeat until you’ve covered the entire plate and tie off the yarn in the back. Please note you will use a lot of yarn, and this isn’t a quick and easy task! It took be almost two spools of yarn and an hour to do 4! That’s why I mentioned the thicker the yarn the better! Mine was fairly thin so that’s why it took the time it did.
Enjoy your yarn chargers….and please share with us the end result if you give this DIY project a ‘spin’!
