Hardly any supplies needed, very easy, very cute. Sign me up. This is great. I am a crochet person so I have tons of yarn around the house. I can make up a bunch of these to hang on the lower branches of my tree.that way the grand kids can see and touch without fear of breaking. Thanks for sharing a great idea.
