A little holiday elf dropped this tutorial by the lovely Katie Brown at Smile Like You Mean It blog this morning. It is so cute and simple, and I had all the materials needed. I just HAD to make it. Right Now.

Here is my attempt:
- old shower curtain rings
- glue gun
- yarn of various colors
Okay, I know there’ll be a bunch of trial & error there, since I wasn’t sure about my patterns, color combinations, or length of yarn I needed.
Attempt #1: wrapping yarn on my finger before looping it onto a ring.
Verdict: not exactly as efficient of a strategy as I hoped for. Next!
Attempt #2: stick with the basic approach – one loop at a time.
Verdict: it actually wasn’t too bad.
Ta-da! Look at what I made.
I decided to string a bunch of them together and hang them in front of my closet door.
If my ceiling wasn’t 10 ft. tall, I would string them across my ceiling too.
anywhere else you can think of putting them?
