Today's post is DIY Wool Dryer Balls, which I got from here. I've wanted to make our house some of these for a while now, but never really got around to it. Well, while going through my Pinterest boards the other day, I found a pin for them. Upon further investigation, I realized how easy they would be to make! And guess what just happened to be on sale at Hobby Lobby the other day? Yarn!
-100% Wool Yarn
-An old pair of pantyhose, thigh highs, etc.
I started off by wrapping the yarn around my fingers 15-20 times:
Next, I slid it off my fingers and wrapped my yarn around the middle a few times:
Then, I continued to go around until I formed a ball the size I was happy with, cut the yarn, and tucked in the end:
Then, I tied them in an old pair of thigh highs I had:
These are 3 of my 7 finished balls:
And, let me say, they DO work like a charm. Last night, I used them to fluff up some pillows and then to quicken the drying process of a load of towels. It didn't save a ton of time, but in the end, every ten minutes saved is more money in our pockets.
P.S.- Make sure to wrap the balls tightly, or you will end up with a 20 minute mess that looks like this:
