Scrap Yarn Uses : Home Decor Edition


I hate to waste any of my yarn! I’ve been collecting ideas for putting even the smallest of scraps to good use. Most of my favorite ideas for stash & scrap busting are home decor related.

Here are a bunch ways that you can clear out your yarn stash while sprucing up your space. None of these ideas require knitting or crochet skills so anyone can try them out!
