Christmas ideas Part 2! The stick horse!
A men's size sock
felt or brown fabric for ears
A needle & thread
a large yarn needle
hot glue gun
sewing machine (optional)
Step 1: Dump all the buttons on the floor and stir with the dowel (optional, and best done by 2-year-olds).
Step 9: The mane! There are several different ways to do this. I'll show you two.
Option1: Thread a large needle with yarn, and loosely weave it in and out, leaving big loops on either side.
When you're out of yarn, cut the loops and tie one side to the other.
Option 2: Cut a whole bunch of yarn double the length you want the mane. Using a large needle, weave another piece of yarn in and out a few times down the center of the hairs. You don't have to do through every piece.
Carefully pick up this whole seection of hair and hot glue the center of it to on the horses head. To cover up the glue, tie a few strings from one side to the other side, here and there.
Trim the hair if necessay, and use a little hot glue along where the ears connect to the head to help them stand up better if necessary (not pictured).
