Kids' Craft Camp: Braided Octopus

Tassel dolls are the perfect way to make fun toys without knitting or crocheting. This octopus tassel doll only requires you to count to 8 and braid!

To make it, you'll need some yarn (any weight, color, or texture), a pair of scissors, and something to wrap your yarn around. We used a binder, but you can use a notebook, a tissuebox, a DVD case, or whatever else is handy.

    Oh my gosh! I still remember making these as a kid back in the day when ALL yarn came on twisted skeins. We just opened up the skein, stuck a styrofoam ball in the top and covered it with yarn, tying it around the neck. Then we cut the bottom and braided the legs. Such fun! Thanks for the great memory!

    Thank you! I had this really thick nylon yarn that I wanted to use to make a toy for my dog and this was great. He loves to chew it and the nylon yarn lasts longer! He loves to play fetch with it.
