How to Make a Ramen Bowl out of Yarn


There’s nothing better than a nice, hot bowl of freshly made ramen. Especially on a cold evening. Another thing that goes great with a chilly night is a nice pair of hand-crocheted socks. So why not combine the two, just for kicks?

YouTuber Betibettin uploaded an instructional video on how to recreate the famous Japanese dish using nothing but colored yarn and cellophane paper. At first glance, the professional crocheter’s creation looks like something off a menu, but it gets fuzzier with details. The video demonstrates the various techniques used to get the full, three-dimensional effect of the yarn.

The next time you find yourself home alone on a cold Friday night, ramen-less, maybe give the Ramen Yarn Bowl a shot.

Looks good enough to eat.

DIY Koozie Turns Your Freezie into a Lightsaber

Light Saber Popsicles

Popsicles are a summer staple, but the push-up kind can cause frozen fingers, fast. Cue the summer’s most adorable Star Wars accessory — lightsaber freezies.

Crafter Dearest Debi has taken her yarn skills to the next level with these miniature crocheted hilts so that your freezies instantly transform into cutesy lightsabers. According to her tutorial, this project is pretty easy to complete, even if you’re a rookie in the crochet game.

The best part is these tiny popsicle koozies can be used year round (maybe)! Custom finger warmers in the winter, perhaps? Anything can be considered cool, so long as it transforms into a lightsaber.
