  • How to make a Christmas tree ornament. Beanie Ornament - Step 1
    Step 1

    Collect a toilet paper roll and, with the help of both a tape measure and pencil, make a mark every 2 cm along the length of the roll.
    In my case : 4 marks, so five spaces 2 cm wide each.

    To be more precise when cutting later, I suggest you add more marks along the perimeter of each 2 cm-wide section to join in a continuous line.

    Collect the yarn you want to decorate with your ring.
    I`m using a metallic one in a shade of silver. I cut at least 50 pieces, each 28/30 cm long. Keep in mind that the number of threads could be less or more than mine, because this number depends on the thickness of the yarn you intend to use !

    Once all the threads are on the other side, untwist them and pull them to have a neat brim bottom to your hat-to-be.
    Cut an extra length of yarn to knot around the previous threads to form the hanging loop.
