Day 10: Yarn octopus or octopi? I am not sure, but all I know is that I have been teaching these for a few years now and they’re always a hit. Plus they take around 2-3 hours so it is a great project to do over time or in one long sitting.

WHAT DO I NEED?

  • YARN
  • TENNIS BALL
  • RUBBERBANDS
  • FELT
  • ANY EXTRA EMBELLISHMENTS YOU WANT TO ADD
  • CRAFT GLUE

HOW DO I MAKE THEM?

STEP 1: WRAP YARN AROUND A LARGE PIECE OF CARDBOARD AROUND 100 TIMES

STEP 2: CAREFULLY REMOVE FROM CARDBOARD

STEP 3: TIE A KNOT

STEP 4: CUT OPPOSITE END OF KNOT

STEP 5: PUT TENNIS BALL BETWEEN THE YARN NEAR THE KNOT

STEP 6: TIE A RUBBERBAND

STEP 7: DIVIDE YARN INTO 8 EQUAL SECTIONS. EITHER USE A RUBBER BAND OR A CLOTHESPIN TO SEPARATE

STEP 8: ONE AT A TIME, REMOVE CLOTHESPIN AND BRAID

STEP 9: USE GLUE AND ADD DECORATION AND EMBELLISHMENT.
