How to make cute thread holders



diy tutorial how to make easy animal thread holder by akwiinas
A few weeks ago I made something new - thread holders made of paper. I found this idea in Pinterest and a picture that led me to the Little White Whale blog (there you will see how Gloria originally made her cats).

Let me add some notes from me, how I made my cute animals.
I used:
• thick kraftpaper,
• scissors to cut out a shape,
• Sharpie to draw a face,
• watercolors to paint a face,
• colorful threads or strings.

Like Gloria suggests, you can use cardboard or other thick paper in size of a business card. At first I drew the face and ears, then I cut the right shape. Each animal got his own color of thread and the same color I tried to include in face painting. Depending on the paper you use, animals can hold different threads or yarn.
Below you can see my animal set.
