This can be a great gift for kids to give to their friends. This craft works best for kids ages 8 and up.
What You’ll need:
- Ball Point Pen
- Multi-Color Yarn
- Tacky Glue or Low Temp Glue Gun
- Pony Beads
- Alphabet Beads
Instructions for the project:
Place a very thin bead of glue near the tip of the pen, and up about 1″ on to the barrel, (try to use as little glue as possible). Starting near the tip, carefully wrap the yarn tightly around pen, without leaving any gaps. You can add more glue as you go. Keep in mind that you can change yarn colors, but it is much easier to use multicolor yarn. When you reach the end, trim the yarn, and secure with a little dab of glue. Cut three 12″ pieces of yarn, and knot the three pieces together near one end. You can now braid them and end with another knot. Glue on the end of the pen and add additional braids if desired. You can also add pony beads or alphabet beads, for further decoration.
