Use old scraps of yarn to make this garden mobile
Using the same technique as used for the garden plant supports I made, I made this for the garden. I simply split a bamboo cane into four equal sized pieces and wrapped each with bits of scrap yarn. I then lashed the four sticks together to make the shape and hung it from the cherry tree in our garden (out of reach of the local cats!).

You could make any shape and add beads and sequins to this to make it more elaborate. I'm totally hooked now, wrapping the yarn is really quick and the whole project took no time at all.

It's very easy and easily simple enough for a teenager. I didn't use any glue, simply catching each new colour of yarn under the previous and then wrapping over, but it could be made simpler by using a little glue to stick the yarn to the bamboo. A 3 or 4 year old might find wrapping the yarn tightly a little fiddly, but could help picking the colours and gluing the ends down. Oh, and adding any extra fun dangly bits like sequins or beads! Hope that helps.

do you think this would be hard for a teenager and a 3 or 4 year old to do?
