This is a simple, but very useful craft for those who knit or crochet. Just put the ball of yarn you are working with inside a clean (dust it out with a cloth) oatmeal container. Then make a hole for the strand of yarn to come through. Now you won’t have the ball of yarn fall on the floor while you are working with the yarn. I’ve had that problem, but no more!
They show how to decorate the outside of the cylindrical oatmeal box, to look more chic I guess. It’s totally up to you if you want to do that or not. You don’t have to make it look like theirs either, though theirs is nice. You can decoupage the outside or use fabric or personalize it however you like. You might even find a better size container to use for your projects.
