For this project, you will need…
- Popsicle sticks
- Yarn in assorted colors or a variegated skein or yarn
- Adhesive gems
- Hot glue
Use hot glue to attach 2 of the sticks together in an X configuration.
Attach one end of a yarn piece to the center of the popsicle stick cross by tying it in a knot, making sure the knot is on the back side of the piece.
Holding the popsicle sticks like a “T”, wrap the tail of the yarn back and around the top stick. Loop the yarn down to the right and up and around the stick on the right side. Rotate the entire popsicle stick piece to the left 45 degrees.
Continue looping in this same manner, working all the way around the piece, until you run out of yarn. If creating a project with multiple colors of yarn, attach the subsequent yarn piece to the previous piece by tying them together in a knot on the back side of the piece.
When you are done wrapping, secure the end of the yarn by tying it in a knot on the back of the piece.
Finish by embellishing with adhesive gems or sequins.Find more crafts here
