Christmas Tree Wrap 8.5 x 14 (legal sized paper)

Christmas Tree Wrap 11 x 17 (for large format printers)

DIY braided rope is so easy

Supplies for braided rope:

Yarn. And that’s it!

How to:

1. Cut a piece of yarn that is 6 times longer than the size of rope you will eventually need. I cut an 18′ piece of yarn and my rope ended up being about 3.5′ which goes around a small present and ties in a bow.

2. Fold the yarn in half. With a partner, each of you holding one end, start twisting in opposite directions.

3. When it’s as tightly twisted as can be, fold it in half. This is the magical part, because right after you do that it will start twisting on itself again. It’s hard to explain, but it just happens!

4. Tie the loose end with one knot and trim. Now you have braided rope!
