This simple yarn craft can be created anywhere. While this sheet explains how to make one that’s about hand-sized, you can use embroidery floss and toothpicks for a small one for SWAPs or branches to create a really large one.
- Popsicle sticks, 2
- Yarn, scraps
Start with an X — Make an “x” with two popsicle sticks.
Knot — Tie a knot around the center. Make sure it is tight.
Wrap center — Wrap to make an “x” — 10 times one way, then 10 times the other.
Wrap sticks — Wrap yarn around stick, then move around and do the next one and continue around. Be sure to wrap the same way all around.
You can change the color of yarn, use other fibers or wrap differently. Adding items such as beads, feathers, pom poms and tassels can give your design a different look.
