Yarn Monsters

Yarn Monsters


  • Yarn
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Drawn or Googly Eyes
  • Scissors
  • White Glue


Bend your pipe cleaner in half and twist it about 1/3 of the way down, just shy of the three adult finger width that you will wrap the yarn around. Wrap your yarn around your fingers so you get a nice thick chunk of yarn. Thick is best for this so ‘over doing’ is better than ‘under doing’ this stage. Slide one of the pipe cleaner legs through the chunk of yarn and twist tightly. Carefully snip through the loops of yarn trying to keep the lengths even. Gently pull the yarn strands down to cover the hooped part of the pipe cleaner and trim any irregular bits off. Create little feet with the pipe cleaner that will help your Yarn Monster stand. Curl each of the remaining pipe cleaner strands to create flat tight circles. Add some eyes and let the Yarn Monster fun begin.
