This craft is great for kids (over the age of 6) and requires only 2 supplies:
A paper towel tube and yarn.
Let's get started...
Cut the tube into 1/2" rings.
Cut SEVERAL 10" pieces of yarn (color of your choice). I found it easier to wrap it around a book before cutting .
Continue to add pieces of yarn, making the loop knots for each one.
When you get done, it will look like a little hula skirt, or beard, or sea urchin.
Take the ends of the beard and push them (all of them, but not all at once, if you don't want) up through the middle of the ring.
Now there should be a "band" around the ring.
Pull all of the strings tight and tie one string around the bottom (about 2" from the band)Snip the tops of the strings to create the ball for the top of your MINIATURE STOCKING CAP
Isn't that just adorable?!
It is a fun, easy craft, with minimal mess (holla), and doesn't require a lot of brain cells.
