They are pretty simple to make, just loop wool onto a stick or wooden dowel rod. Meri has great instructions on her blog. The key is to have a great selection of chunky and interesting wool. I went on a bit of a mission for a few months prior and collected up anything I could find on sale. I must admit I got a bit addicted buying wool all the time. I also made some glitter feathers by dipping white feathers in gold glitter so the children could add these and some gold tassels I found at the $2 shop.
Some children loved this, some were not so keen. I think they all turned out great though and would look so great hanging on a bedroom wall.
