How To Make The Most Adorable Yarn Monsters

Step 1Wrap the yarn around your cardboard like shown below. The exact size of cardboard doesn’t matter! In fact, you could also use a small book or anything else that would work well. The more yarn you wrap around, the thicker and fluffier your monsters will be.

Step 2Stick a pipe cleaner through the top of the wrapped yarn and twist it tightly together to secure the yarn. Next, trim off the bottom of the yarn to your desired length. You should now have what looks like a hairy mop with antennas. 😄Easy yarn monsters craft for kids to make at home or school.

Step 3Use another pipe cleaner to make your monster head. Simply wrap it around the yarn about an inch down from the top, pull it tightly, twist a few times to secure it, and then trim off the excess.

Step 4Roll the two pipe cleaners at the top into spirals to create the monster’s antennas (you may need to trim them a bit first). Glue on a few googly eyes and you’re done! Place as many googly eyes in random places as you’d like. These are monsters, after all. Make them weird!

These quirky creatures come to life with vibrant colors and textures. They look really cool hanging out on a bookshelf, desk, bed, playroom, counter top, or anywhere else in the house you want to display a playful decoration.
