Yarn Emergency Shadow Box

Stash Buster Project: Yarn, Craft or Hobby Emergency Shadow Box
Ok, yarn stashers, you are going to love this project! Display your yarn in a clever "In Case of Emergency Break Glass" shadow box. It's ridiculously easy to create, can be customized for just about any hobby or interest and would make a great gift.


  • shadow box that is at least 3 inches deep
  • vinyl lettering
  • yarn, knitting needles, crochet hooks or whatever you want to display inside your shadow box
  • large piece of background paper (optional)

Yarn Emergency Shadow Box Directions

It's really important to use a shadow box that has enough depth. Most yarn cakes are about 3 inches tall, so if you use a box that is only an inch or two thick, your cakes will be smooshed up.

In Case of Emergency Break Glass shadow box

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the words from a sheet of adhesive vinyl, but you can purchase sheets of vinyl or sticker lettering at most craft stores.

Clean the glass and stick on the words/letters.

Now the fun part. Fill it up with yarn or other crafty materials and supplies. If you leave a little space at the top of your shadow box, you may want to put a large piece of plain paper between your items and the back of the box.

Close up the back and you're done.
