This project required nothing more than cardboard and yarn. Lots and lots of yarn. How it's made should be pretty obvious, but I will point out a few details that might help in case you want to make one yourself:
- I used four different yarns (2 boucle and 2 chunky) which give an interesting texture
- I alternated between the yarns as I wrapped (i.e. 3 times around with blue boucle, then 3 times with blue chunky, 3 times with green boucle, 3 times with dark blue chunky and repeat...) I wanted the different colours and textures to blend together a bit
If I were going out and buying materials to make this again, I would probably go for more traditional Christmas colours. I think an assortment of reds, greens and creams would look lovely! But it sure was nice to use up yarn I'd had sitting around for nearly a decade!
As a bonus, it matches my couch perfectly.
