The Frugal Crafter via Ucreate, I'm pretty sure I squealed in delight. This is one of those times that it's a good thing that Hobby Lobby isn't open 24 hours, otherwise I would've gone right away to get the supplies to do this. (updated to add: turns out they sell this type of crochet cotton at my Wal-Mart, so I could've had my instant craftification fix after all!)
UKmaryanne gets the original credit for this idea, and she made this wonderful video tutorial showing how simple it is.
I know not everyone can watch videos, so I'll share a tutorial for how I made this, too. Here is what you need.
- white #10 crochet cotton thread (a huge roll is just a couple bucks at Hobby Lobby or Wal-Mart)
- permanent markers in color of choice
- masking tape (optional)
