Plarn is so cool! I love to crochet, and I love to help reduce waste, plus it's like I have an unlimited supply of free yarn. thanks for the idea! I never thought of making plarn flowers before.

There is a video on youtube which shows you how to make plarn. Just go to youtube and do a site search for plarn. If you knit or crochet (which I don't) you can make your plarn for your projects.
