Bowl of wool the wool – do it yourself!

Today I come to share another do it your same and at the same time is a recycled for best! I love these! and to you?

When I did more than 70 pairs of gloves on 2012 together every piece of wool and had them in a bag and then throw them! because I thought that I could use them!

After this failed attempt to save the remains and somehow become a cachurera by profession, save restitos here and there…  When my James died my great friend Coral I gift a plant very beautiful and came in a bucket red cute! and put it on a piece of furniture and Wham! started it to fill with the restitos I had here and there!

Then came the inspiration = spirit

It occurred to me to make a bowl with the remains of wool, a bowl for the lana!

Then I found the Red Bowl on the street (which does not appear in the photo but was the second that use), if! on the street and it was perfect for my project… I only needed white school glue PVA or colafria.

Here I give you my "recipe"

Bowl of wool to wool


yarn bowl and row counter 001

  • a bowl full of cuts/remains of wool
  • 500 grams of adhesive
  • Bowl mold
  • cling wrap / plastic kitchenware
  • adhesive tape


  • Covers the mold (Bowl) with plastic of kitchen and with tape adhesive unes them tips, if you use adhesive thick a cross is enough or 3 cross forming an asterisk, so the plastic not is move.

  • moisten slightly it wool (2 tablespoons of water, so the glue gives for more)-I not it did but facilitates the process!
  • Proceeds to put the glue on wool and blend it with your fingers until the wool impregnated with glue, I had to put more water (not much!)
