This interesting craft combines a number of techniques to produce a "woven" thistle with lots of texture.
You will need:
Purple and green wool
Our thistle template
Print our template on to the green card and cut out.
Punch holes along the top. Cut 4 'notches' from each side - look at the photo below to see how.
Tape the end of the green wool to the back of the template. Wrap the wool around the template from notch 1 on one side to notch 2 on the other, all the way down the thistle and back up to produce a crisscross effect.
Tape the end of the wool to the back of the template.
To make the tassels at the top, cut two lengths of wool for each hole. Fold them in half and push the length through the hole, making a loop. Thread the loose ends of wool through the loop. Repeat for each hole.
