Shake Shakes II

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease« Thick & Quick«

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

SHAKE SHAKES
Make Base

Put a small amount of Sprinkles into one party cup. Apply glue to the rim of this cup, then glue the rim of an empty cup to it. Allow glue to dry. Apply masking tape over joined edge. For large Shake, make 2 Bases and glue flat bottoms together.

Wrap with Yarn
Apply a small amount of glue to one section of Base and begin wrapping with yarn in color as desired. Continue to apply glue to sections and wrap with yarn until entire Base is covered. Allow to dry.

Decorate
Cut lengths of yarns and glue onto Shake as desired. Tie a few knots in a length of yarn and glue to one end of Shake. To make a pom-pom, wrap 2 strands of yarn around 3 fingers a few times. Slip yarn off fingers and tie another strand around center. Trim ends of strands. Glue center of pom-pom to one end of Shake.

Shake Shakes II Reviewed by C Wallis Davenport on 2013-06-09 *****
These were really easy and fun to make. I actually used plastic pudding cups. I traced cereal boxes to cap the ones where I wanted a single one, instead of two put together. Otherwise, the technique was the same.

I kept them on my table for festive decorations. After a few days, my daughter and cats started to enjoy them as playthings. They really had a blast!

I plan on making some more with different color combinations.
