Countdown to Knitmas: Day 21!

Hello everyone! I know you've all been furiously knitting and crocheting gifts aplenty, and today I want to share with you all some ideas for wrapping up those gifts to give away using leftover yarn. I often get asked what I do with my little leftover bits, and I always save them because I know I can use them for something someday (can you say hoarder?).

How cute would it be to wrap up the gift using a bit of the yarn you used to knit it? Like a tiny preview of what's inside. Here's a couple ideas for ya:

 I love the idea of transforming some plain brown paper with a colorful rainbow of yarn ties. Easy and effective!

Similar idea, but attach a few tassels and it's instant-fancy!

Make a tiny pom pom and wrap a little yarn around a plain box and you are good to go.

Keep it simple with some pretty colored paper and a big chunky yarn bow!

If you want to get really fancy, weave a little yarn in two colors around a box, how neat and clean does that look??

Happy wrapping!
