Linda: besides leaving small strands out for the birds to build nests in the springtime, maybe this will help:
Pompoms are very popular now in garland, pillows, edge on throws and also the normal uses like hats.
Hi Linda. Have you ever worked with plastic canvas? There are lots of patterns on you tube to make just about anything. Last year I made 75 small baskets used as favors for my Aunt and Uncle's 50th anniv. Cut pattern pieces out of plastic canvas and stitch them together with yarn. You can buy plastic canvas sheets at any sewing/craft store. And very inexpensive. This would be a great way to use any leftover yarn.
Hi Linda: If the yarn is at least 9" long, you can make little yarn hats using toilet paper rolls. I'd tell you how to do it, but it would be all crazy, so here's a site that is so much better:) https://www.handimania.com/diy/little-yarn-hats-all-steps.html I make these and they fit Barbies, bottle tops, are Christmas tree ornaments, etc. Or, if the pieces are smaller, you can put them in a suet holder in the spring for the birds to use in their nests:) Good luck
If it is just a small ball of yarn, you could make wool dryer balls with it. The center of the wool dryer balls is a small ball of yard that you cover with the wool and felt it.
