Mother’s Day Craft: Yarn Wrapped Vase

Share:

We needed a vase to go with our watercolor coffee filter flowers we made for Mother’s Day.

I did a little googling for some “vase crafts” and found some beautiful yarn wrapped vases, there’s a cool rainbow vase from Kaboose.

I didn’t expect there to be a pattern, or perfectly aligned yarn wrapped around the jar. I just wanted there to be something made with the kids for my mom on Mother’s Day.

Another fun vase craft are tinted mason jars. Learn how to tint mason jars and give them to Mom or Grandma!

What we used to make our vase was a glass jar from our recycling bin, a tall, skinny one. I had a few colors of yarn, luckily in bright, springy colors. And then I used a small piece of tape to get us started by holding the yarn in place.

That was all it took to get started. Henry wrapped away.

When Henry wanted to change colors of yarn, I knotted the end to the next color yarn.

And Henry wrapped some more.

Spinning the jar around and around.

I did help here and there. Assisting with holding the piece of yarn as he spun the jar.

I kept George busy [get more ideas for toddler play] during our crafting with some yarn, too. I put down a piece of contact paper and handed him a few strings of yarn. This was enough to keep him content and occupied, while Henry and I made the vase.

After going through all four colors of yarn that we had. Green, blue, orange and pink. Henry realized he couldn’t see the green yarn anymore, as it was on the bottom.

So, we finished the vase off with some more green yarn. [He has to see the green, its his absolute favorite!]

Once Henry was satisfied with it, and most of the ‘holes’ were covered, I tied off the yarn by just wrapping the end around another piece of yarn that had been wrapped around the jar.

Add in the watercolor coffee filter flowers that Henry and George made and we have our Mother’s Day gift ready this year. Yay!

Henry hand-picked the flowers that go to Grandma. He had these special ones in mind.
