I found this neat little craft idea from the EWC (Endangered Wolf Center) Tumblr page.
This is a fun way to recycle those old twisty-ties that are mainly on bread packaging. If you have pile lying around, or instead of throwing them away, you can save them and make this cute little trinket
Twisty-Tie Wolf - DIYPhotograph and instructions copyrighted to EWC. No infringement intended.Step 1:
Make a skeleton. Two ties for the spine, one tie for each leg. Weave the leg ties into the spine so it’s sturdy. Keep the length of the spine sticking out from the front legs, it will be the neck later on.Step 2:
Start wrapping other ties around the skeleton to form the legs and body. Twist the top of the tie into the spine, and tightly wrap the rest of the tie around the body. Try not to make it hollow!Step 3:
The fun part! Use 3 ties to form the wolf’s “skull”. One for both ears, and two to support the sphere of the head. Wrap ties around the head, with the top of the twistie tightly wrapped around one of the “skull” ties. It is OK if the head is hollow.Step 4:
Connect the head to the body. Pull the two extended ties through the wolf head and twist into the head wherever fits.
Viola! You have a twist tie wolf!
Also, be sure to support EWC and their efforts in spreading wolf awareness. If you have a Tumblr and would like to see more information from them then check out their TUMBLR
