Two Dowels
Yarn (in any color)

DIY Yarn Art

1. Gather your materials

2. Criss-cross your two dowels and secure with nail

3.  Begin by wrapping yarn in the center around all four dowels

4. Work your way outward by looping around each dowel in a circular direction

5. Continue until you see a pattern you are pleased with

6. Introduce another color if you prefer

7. Secure previous and new yarn by simply tying a knot on the back and cutting excess yarn (you can also tape to the back of the dowel to secure it)

8. Optional: You can give your dowels a “dipped” look by wrapping colorful washi tape on the ends to add an extra pop of color!

    We used to love making “God’s Eyes” when we were kids! We always wove them tighter, but these turned out cute loosely woven as well!
