Today’s project is another simple easy DIY project with items you probably already have around the house.

2. Toilet paper or paper towel tube
3. Pencil or pen
4. Measuring tape or ruler

Then measure and cut yarn strands approximately 12 inches long (I used about 40 strands per hat).
Next slip the loop from one strand of yarn through your paper tube. Loop it around the two ends and pull tight. Keep going all the way around the tube. Make sure you have enough strands to cover the paper but don’t squish the yarn too closely together.
