Yarn Vase

I save my yarn scraps, pieces of yarn too small to knit with but so long I don't like to throw them away.  I've been saving them for a while not knowing what I would make with them, now I have the perfect thing.  Yarn Vase! 
What I used: yarn, glue, buttons, and one tall can.

I painted on a thin layer of glue as I wrapped the yarn around the can stringing on buttons here and there.  I read double stick tape or a spray adhesive both work well too.

Need a full tutorial?  There's a nice one on or try using a drinking glass for your vase like at 

Happy Crafting!
