5 Fun and Easy Stash-busting Projects

5 Fun and Easy Stash-busting Projects

Whether you're a yarn-store owner with slow-moving stock, a yarn addict, or just someone who wants to bust their stash; we've got 5 easy projects that will knock that pile of yarn down.

Create some Flower Lights

This project was first introduced as a way to dress up holiday lights. EJ, one of our assembly employees took this idea and ran with it. She pulled yarns from her stash and created 100 Zoom Loom squares to put on a string of lights for her yurt. Keep an eye on her husband's website for a video on how they attached their lights to solar panels!

Weave a Pencil Case

Perfect for back to school crafting, this pencil case actually uses up the last length of a warp, making sure you're not wasting any bit of that precious yarn.

Make ropes, and then make a vest!

The Incredible Rope Machine will completely change how you look at yarn, especially novelty yarns. By mixing and matching yarns, this clever tool transforms otherwise undesirable yarns into something new and exciting! Since the length of each rope is customize-able, you can use up some odds and ends, and then weave them together into a fashionable garment!

Weave a Seasonal Wall Hanging

Use up yarn and fiber stash in this School Loom project. Pick out some non-perishable flowers/plants, and weave them into a lovely wall hanging fit for the season. Since just a few materials are used in this project, you'll have no trouble using what you've got.

Weave a Friendship Bracelet

This rigid heddle project is ideal for using up those bits and bobs of yarn that seem too short to work with. Make one for each of your friends, or make a few to have on hand to give as gifts!
