This is a recycled kids craft. The little ones can really get into this craft, and make something pretty to hang on the tree. Supplies are few.
You will need about 50 pieces of yarn. Wrap around the cardboard and cut one end to give you 12 inch pieces. The hat shown is red and white yarn, alternately wrapped. Double the piece of yarn and slip the loop end through the ring, pull the two ends through the loop and tighten them up; then pull the two ends back up inside the ring and out the other side. Work the yarn pieces close together to completely fill the ring. When it is full, gather all the ends and tie them tightly. Use a piece of yarn long enough to make a hanger after tying the bundle.

Wow! I make these hats and glue them onto a ping pong ball. paint a face of eyes, carrot nose and pink cheeks with a smile and you have a little snowman head, wearing a hat :0)..I've made these with my kids and then with the grands..put them on the tree, packages, add to a few other orns and gift them...also have sold them as snowmen and the teens at church did just the hats in team colors and sold them for a fund raiser at a $1.25 each. They did real well with it :0) Your dirctions are really good..Thanks :0)
