No Hassle Tassle

This is made from a cleaned-out K-cup. It was very easy to do, but if a kid wanted to do it I would definitely have an adult punch the hole through the top. The plastic is hard.

It's hard to see, but I painted the cup and added some glitter

Basically, all you do is gather up a bunch of colors of yarns, ribbons or strings and cut them double the length you'd like. These yarns are about 16 inches long.
Double them up and tie them in the middle with some wire. Poke both ends of the wire up through the hole. Then poke the wire through a bead then a button. Twist it up at the top.
I would add some little beads along the wire to hide the wires, but as anyone who follows this blog knows (all 3 of you), I work with what I have on hand!

Couldn't you just see some jingle bells added to this for a cute musical toy (for a kid who doesn't put things in his mouth, that is!)?

PS--I took this shot with a freebie app on my phone called "Retro Camera." Look it's a blast!
