How to gift wrap with yarn scraps

In the midst of the holiday rush, it’s easy to overlook the easy and creative options in using materials already at hand, like scrap yarn, for gift wrapping. Using your leftover yarn is a cheap alternative, while giving a unique and personal touch to your gift giving. Take a moment to sift through your yarn stash in the Knit&Note app. This way, you’ll have a clear idea of the textures, colors, and quantities you have to work with. For some, the gift wrapping is an important part of the gift, while for others it’s quite the opposite. No matter what end of that scale you are on, I think we can all agree that the gift will look and feel nicer if there is a personal touch 🎄

Yarn weaving

Use your smallest ball of yarn and spin the thread around the parcel several times! In this case, you don’t need to purchase ribbons. The yarns that were otherwise deemed too small for usage can be recycled and are given a new meaning! Just look at how cute these gifts are 😍

Yarn pom poms

You can also make homemade pom poms with your scrap yarn, check out our video on how to easily do that on our Instagram or TikTok. This option is great for tiny leftovers as you can mix all different kinds of yarn colors. Here’s an example of the pompoms sewn into a basic sweater, transforming it into a christmas one.

Yarn bows

Bows are really trending this season, and we love it! 🎀 You can easily tie simple yarn strands into bows or you could knit short i-cords with your scrap yarn and tie them into a bow. These could easily be used in your wrapping, when laying the christmas table or as accessories. We’re obsessed with the outcome and their versatility!

Wrapping gifts with yarn scraps is a creative, eco-friendly, and personal way to wrap your presents. These simple ideas add a special touch to your gifts and don’t have to be complicated! Happy gift-giving 🎁
