What you need:
Pair of scissors
What to do:
Firstly, get your paper plate and scissors and cut small cuts 2cm apart all the way around the rim.
Secondly you get a very long piece of wool to make the X pattern. About 2 metres.
Put the wool in the lines you cut around the rim and start making an X pattern by threading the wool across the plate, in and out of the cuts.
When you're finished making the X pattern tie the wool in a knot so it doesn't come off (this can be tricky you might need an adult to help).
Get your wool (any colour - measure it twice the width of your arms) and tie it to the middle of the X. Weave the wool over and under the wool that made the X pattern, moving around and around the plate. It will look a bit funny at the start but it will look better once you keep going.
When you are ready to change colour tie a new colour to the wool you are threading.
Your plate can have a repeating colour pattern if you like or it can be multi coloured.
