Smile Yarn Octopus

What You Need

Two different colors of yarn
Small ball of cotton
Wiggle eyes
Felt, optional

How To Make It

Cut 24 (12 inch or 30 cm) long pieces of yarn (yarn color number 1).
Lie the yarn on a flat surface so that it looks like the spokes of a wheel, and so that the yarn intersects with each other in the center of the wheel.
Put a small ball of cotton, a little bigger than the size of a Ping-Pong ball in the center of the wheel.
Gather up the pieces of yarn around the cotton and tie them with a piece of an other color of yarn (yarn color number 2).
Separate the yarn into groups of three, and braid them. Tie each braid at the end with a piece of yarn color number 2. You should then end up with 8 braids.
Glue two wiggle eyes onto the yarn surrounding the ball of cotton.
Use either yarn or felt to make a mouth for your octopus and glue it on.
Now enjoy your yarn octopus!



Use a styrofoam ball instead of cotton. When you're done turn the octopus over and stick the pen into the ball.
