Punch a hole at the top center.

drawn monster eyes and mouth

Now draw eyes and a mouth on white paper with the black marker. You’ll need the outlines to be rather thick and easy to cut out. You can also accent with a red marker for the inside of the mouth, too, or use more colors if you’d like.

multiple strands of colorful yarn loop

Next, take 3 or 4 long strands of multi-color yarn. Fold the strands in half. Twist tightly in your fingers and maneuver through the hole. Once through the hole, make a loop with all the strands.

And bring the other ends of the yarn through the loop. Tighten the loop gently and carefully, so it doesn’t pull through the cardstock.

Trim excess ends.
