How to:


Step 1. Stand 5 feet away from your friend with yarn ball in hand, and hold on tight to the end strand of the yarn. Toss the yarn to your friend and pull both your ends so the length between you is taut. Have your friend hold on to their end and throw the ball back to you. Repeat these steps until you have10-20 tight strands between the two of you. Cut the end of your yarn to cut it away from the yarn ball.


Step 2. Still holding the string tight between the two of you, both of you should begin twisting the string in opposite directions until it is twisted tight. Be sure to not let go of your ends.

Walk towards one another, so that the two ends of yarn meet in the middle. They naturally will twist in the middle to create a neat braided look. Take a small piece of yarn and tie a tight knot around the combined ends so the twisting doesn’t come undone.


Make more of these in varying colors, widths and lengths and drape them on tables, behind chairs, around your Christmas tree and across your fireplace mantle.
