In the middle of this rectangular cardboard, wind neatly the threads of the primary color. This will be the main part of your future little man. 3.Slowly remove the threads from the cardboard and on one side tie them with a thread. This is done so that they do not fall apart. 4.

Remove it and tie both edges with a thread, retreating a little from both ends of the base of the hands.
6. Make the little man a head. Retreat enough for the head distance based on its torso, and tie the top of the warp thread (its tip neatly hide). 7. Under the resulting head, divide the threads in two and pass the hands you have made so that they evenly protrude from both sides.

Cut out your mouth from red colored paper and make eyes out of blue and white. Glue them to the base - that's the face.
