Ornament Month: Tiny Yarn Ball Ornaments

One more quick and easy ornament to fill out the week!   Aren't these tiny yarn balls adorable?   They are some of my favorite ornaments so far :)   I got my inspiration here.  I didn't do mine exactly like this tutorial though.  I didn't use a Styrofoam base, instead mine are solid yarn. Instead of dowels, mine are toothpicks with wooden beads on the end.  I also didn't use any glue - I just left a long end at the end of my yarn ball, stuck the end through my little yarn ball using a needle, and tied a loop on the other side.  Then I hid the remaining end inside the ball.  I have tons of yarn, and already had the toothpicks, and found the beads on clearance at Michael's, so this ended up being a super cheapy cheap ornament - and I love them!  Yay!
