Dear Friends,

Today I am sharing with you my new creation designed specially for my loving students and teachers as I promised.

The elephant die of Sizzix is my favorite and inspired me to create best out of waste using disposable hangers at home ,I tried to pick easily available materials at home for making it. Hope you will love it too.

Getting inspired by this learning I am sure you will be having lot more ideas and creativity coming in mind.

Please share how this idea inspired you??
Love to hear from you!!!

Materials I used

  • Black marker or pen
  • Wool in different colours
  • Sequence/studs
  • White beads
  • Pom Pom
  • Glue
  • Needle
  • Old disposable hanger

4 .Now remove the wool from fork and cut both sides and give it the final shape of pom pom.

5. Now make a big PomPom with the help of a big comb as shown.
