Do you ever get the unshakeable urge, the deep desire to just create? You don’t know what or why, but you just need to make something. Anything. Now. Scones, a painting, a pathway, a short story, pom poms, a skirt. Whatever, just make it snappy.
Next time that urge strikes, keep this quick, cute craft in the back of your mind: wool-wrapping. I’ve seen bits and pieces about the interwebs and thought I’d give it a whirl while Isy and I were having crafty time. It’s quick, easy, repurposeful and, provided you have some wool lying about somewhere, it’s free!
a stick (pick one up off the ground or your backyard – just make sure it’s not home to any little insects) twiggy is good.
some wool (bright colours look cute, but white or grey is surprisingly sophisticated)
- Start at one end and wrap the wool around your stick, tucking the end of the wool in to the first few rounds, to secure it.
- Keep wrapping till you reach the other end. Tie a knot in the wool and trim.
The end. (See? Super easy. Tutorial really unnecessary!)
