6. Weave yarn in and out of strips, pushing weaving to bottom of cup as you work.

TO CHANGE COLORS

1. Cut first yarn and bring tail to inside (see blue yarn in photo). Place end of new second color inside cup, skipping one weaving strip (see green yarn in photo).

2. Begin weaving with new color, trapping yarn tails between weaving and inside of cup as you go.

3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 as necessary for desired stripe pattern.

TO FINISH

Both Versions

Cut yarn and tuck tail into weaving at inside of cup. Dab with glue and let dry to secure.

BRAID:  Cut 12 lengths of yarn approximately 36” [91.5 cm] long. Tie strands together close to one end.

Divide strands into groups of 4 and braid together, tying a knot to secure end. Glue braid around top edge of cup, cutting to size and securing ends at inside of cup with glue (cut off any knots to avoid bulk).

Make a second braid and glue around bottom of cup in the same manner.
