If you need to practice tying a bow or have a child who needs to learn how to tie his or her shoes, this box is the way to go! It is economical, practical and easy peasy to make. All it takes is a few items you probably already have lying around your house and a little creativity. Now let's get started!

Step 1: Gather Everything You Will Need

First, gather everything you will need. You probably have most of these things around your house already.
  • Box (This box is 10.5 inches x 7 inches)
  • Painting brush or paint sponge
  • Yarn (about 4 feet) (Thicker yarn is better than the single strand for practicing bows and tying)
  • Paint (Any type will do; this is a great project for leftover paint)
  • Scissors
  • Drop cloth or anything you do not mind getting paint on
  • Ruler or you can estimate how much yarn you will need if you have ninja-like measuring skills
Why didn't I think of that!!! Making one tonight!!<br>Thank you:)<br>
Cool! Glad you like the 'ible. Post a pic when you are done.
Hey, that's a cool idea! When I was a kid, my mom made me something similar, with yarn and a big yarn needle to practice sewing with.
Depotdevoid, Thanks! I made this so my son could learn how to tie his shoes. <br><br>I like the idea of using it to learn how to hand sew too with a big yarn needle too.
