Get into the holiday spirit a little early with this festive Hair Wrap
I'm trying to get into the holiday spirit this year, but it still seems a bit early. I did a festive hair wrap this morning though, so it's a slow, but steady start!
Want to learn how to make one for yourself?

Choose the colours that you would like for your hair wrap. I chose red, green and white to make it festive. You can choose up to 6 colours if you like.
Cut very long strands of these colours out of your embroidery floss. Don't split the floss, use all six strands for the wrap. To give you an idea about how much floss you will need, I hung mine on a door with both ends of each colour hitting the floor. But don't worry if you miscalculate - you can either add more with a knot or cut off the excess at the end.
For a solid design, choose a colour and find both strands of it. It chose green first. Place the unused strands of floss in line with the sectioned hair. Begin wrapping the green strands around your hair. Around and around and around. The beginning is frustrating if you're doing it on your own hair because you have to see it in a mirror. But keep trying.
For a solid background with an X design - first choose two strands of floss that you want for the X. I chose green and white. Then choose the background solid. I chose red. Leaving the white and green X strands at the top of the section, start wrapping the red strands as if you were doing a solid piece.
