Cardboard & Yarn Craft Ornament


Since Mai has started daycare our craft collection has doubled itself. We have a collection of home crafts & now the take home ones as well. Our kitchen island has a pile of them. This week, we hung up a few of our favorites to display them. This weekend we decided to make some crafts that were meant to be hung. Since Halloween is over & Christmas is everywhere, now was as good a time as any to make our first ornament.

What you will need:






Cut out your desired shape



Cut out notches in the cardboard.




Paint the cardboard shape.



Wrap yarn around an empty toilet paper roll to make it easier for little hands.


Pull the end of a piece of yarn through one of the notches. Pull tight around another notch & continue until you achieve the look you like. Younger toddlers may need a hand with this.



Pick a side that you like better. Glue a string to the opposite side.
