Cut one end of each cardboard piece into a point.

Wrap each shape horizontally with yarn in color as desired.
Allow to dry.
Apply glue lightly to both sides of cardboard shape, covering previously-wrapped strands.
Wrap each Brooch with 2 colors of yarn wrapped vertically, wrapping about one third of the Brooch with each color alternately.
Allow to dry.

Cut short lengths of brown yarn for ‘X’s and ‘O’s and glue to each Brooch.
Cut 2-3 strands of 2 colors of yarn, each 5 in. (12.5 cm) long.
Tie one strand around others at center. Cut a 6 in. (15 cm) length of any color and wrap tightly around strands 1/2 in. (1.25 cm) below top knot. Knot securely. Tie a Tassel to point of each Brooch.
Trim Tassel ends.
Glue a pin back to each Brooch.
