Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    Cut your empty cereal box to size. (I cut out a 5" x 7" (12.7 x 17.8 cm) rectangle so that the final masterpiece could be framed.)

  • Step 2

    Draw your design. Or better yet, have your kids draw a fun design.

  • Step 3

    With a hammer and nail, poke holes all along the drawing. I suggest spacing out the holes about 1/4" to 3/8" (.64 to 1 cm) apart.

    Tip

    Make sure to have some padding underneath the cardboard to protect your work surface. I just padded the 5"x7" cardboard with another piece of cardboard.

  • Step 4

    Pull out your colored yarn and thread up your needle. (My girls used a plastic needle, which had a large eye for them to thread.)

  • Step 5

    Tie a knot at the end and start stitching from the back of the card. Pull the needle up and down to connect the dots.
