Whether you are going to personally decorate a section of your house to give it a handcrafted feel or just trying to help your child with his/her art and craft project, woollen art is quite a dependable route to take. It isn’t always the easiest project to handle, but it doesn’t always have to be super complicated either to be beautiful, as you will see next.
The Woollen Flower
You can order all the art and craft materials you need for the projects straight from Raaaft and have them delivered to your doorstep. A ball of wool, a pair of scissors, an even, straight round glass, a glue gun, and beads are pretty much everything that you will need for this one though.
How to do it
Wrap the strand around the glass for about 30 – 40 times (if it’s of the standard circumference) and then cut the strand from the main ball of wool. Push it off the glass to have a ring of woollen strand.
Now, cut another small piece of the strand (8 - 12-inches roughly) from the ball to tie the woollen ring right down the middle with two tight knots. At this point, there should be two equal loops on either side of the knots.
Cut both the loops down the middle with your scissors, spread the strands and flatten them till the whole thing starts resembling the petals of a flower.
Trim all the uneven strands till you are satisfied, before gluing a sufficiently large bead in the centre to act as the disc of your flower.
