yarn monster

Yarn isn’t just for knitting! You’ll have a blast weaving and wrapping with yarn to make cute creations.
Step 1

Begin with one chenille pipe cleaner. Shape it into a circle and twist together about 2" [5 cm] from the ends. Set aside.

Step 2

Wrap some yarn around your hand, about 20 times, and slide off. Hold the loops in your hand and thread a small piece of yarn through the loops and tie a knot. Now cut open the loops on the opposite end.

Step 3

Place the yarn (where you tied it together) between the ends of the chenille pipe cleaner and twist together to hold the yarn in place.

Step 4

Now, bend the chenille pipe cleaner under the yarn so that your yarn monster will stand on its own.
TIP: If you keep the bottom of the chenille pipe cleaner straight, you should be able to get it to stand.

Step 5
Finally, curl the ends of the chenille pipe cleaners and glue a wiggle eye in the center of each. Let dry.
