First things first - gather your materials. You will need: one white cotton t-shirt, a tennis ball, a pair of sharp scissors, and a black marker. Don't forget to nap on your materials.
Next, cut the arms and shoulder off of the shirt. This step is for humans only, unless you are like me and have skills.
After you have finished the first cut, go ahead and cut down the side seam so you have one long piece of fabric.
Place the tennis ball right in the middle of the fabric. Now would be a good time to sniff the tennis ball. And attack it. But then put it back in the middle.
Fold one side over the tennis ball.
Then fold the other side over.
Bring the two sides together and tie a double knot.
Next, cut each side into six strands. You should have twelve strands total.
Once the strands are cut, select three strands at a time and braid them. You should end up with four braids total. This step also requires skill. Or some human hands. Whichever is readily available.
Finally, use the black marker to draw a spooky face on the ghost tug toy and curl up in your bed to take a nap. You worked hard!
I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments on this project - especially if you give it a try!
