Using the hole punch, punch 8 holes into the flat bottom part of the paper plate.
Try to space the holes out as evenly as possible.
Cut the yarn into 12 inch pieces. Complete this step 8 times.
String each piece of yarn into each hole in the paper plate and tie into a knot. (I place the yarn going through the painted side and tie in a knot on the unpainted side.
