Making your Own (Yarn) Display

Making your Own Yarn Display

"You probably recognize this: All those beautiful skeins of yarn in a lush variety of materials and colors and no way to enjoy it all because it is all tucked away in the stash. It really is a shame to have to put it all away to protect it against the effects of UV light, odors, dust, pets, and vermin. It makes it pretty hard to enjoy the woolly splendor…. Why not make a rotating exhibition of your favorite yarns on your favorite spot in the house? Regular “tossing” of the wool stash also has its advantages. It discourages moths and makes it possible to nip an infestation in the bud. Also, doing this we can enjoy all the yarn, even if we are busy with things other than crochet and knitting. Therefore, I want to show you in this post how you can make an etagere yourself for a superb display of your favorite skeins of yarn."

Materials List

  • 3 plates / dishes in varying sizes
  • 2 cups, glasses or ice cream sundaes
  • A sealant gun with Polymax (DIY store)
  • Ruler
  • Bowl with soapsuds
  • Some paper towels

Boy, oh boy, I personally would have to make my three tiered yarn display centerpiece using not dinner plates but more like platters! Too funny! All kidding aside, this is easy, simple, and requires no crafting experience. It can also be used to store and display many other things, as well. Spools of colorful thread, mounds of pompoms, and kinds of stuff.

This is pretty genius. I've always wondered what to do with all of my pretty skeins of yarn in the interim. This would make a pretty quirky home decor piece. You can just swap the skeins for colors that match the "mood" of the room or the season. I love it (and it seems so simple to make)!
