Okay, I did it.  I jumped on the wagon.  But who wouldn't love having little balls of yarn hanging from thier tree?

(this one should have been taken from a different angle... its a bit cluttered, but it's got all the ornaments and that tree just looks so cute.)

Thanks! 

Yes, I did use a simple cheap ornament and a glue gun (to help the yarn stick at the start, mine were slippery) and the yarns.  The knitting needles are round toothpicks with beads glued to the end.

I really like these! It looks like a great way to use up scrap yarn and let everyone know how much you love yarn at the same time!

You bet!  I still have  quite a bit of scraps and ornaments left, so I'm sure there will be more in my future!
