TO MAKE THE YARN HOLDER:
Cut a round hole in the center of the lid of a large oatmeal canister. The hole should be large enough for the yarn to feed through.
Decorate the outside of the container with scrapbook paper, fabric, heavy wrapping paper or contact paper.
Embellish it with beads, buttons, yarn photos, sequins, etc.
HOW TO USE
To use the yarn dispenser, simply place a ball of yarn or a skein of yarn inside the canister.
Take the end of the yarn and feed it through the lid.
Place the lid on the canister.
THE YARN HOLDER IS READY TO USE. Just pull the yarn out of the canister as needed.
