What You'll Need
How We Did It
Cut your empty cereal box to size. (I cut out a 5" x 7" rectangle so that the final masterpiece could be framed.)
With a hammer and nail, poke holes all along the drawing. I suggest spacing out the holes about 1/4" to 3/8" apart.
Tip: Make sure to have some padding underneath the cardboard to protect your work surface. I just padded the 5"x7" cardboard with another piece of cardboard.
Pull out your colored yarn and thread up your needle. (My girls used a plastic needle, which had a large eye for them to thread.)
Tie a knot at the end and start stitching from the back of the card. Pull the needle up and down to connect the dots.
