Cut the second color to the same length as the first.
Cut one length of yarn at 12 inches.
Cut three pieces of yarn at 18 inches.
Begin weaving the two pieces of rickrack together.
As you weave, the two pieces of rickrack will twist.

Staple the ends together making sure all four ends are secured.
Flatten the circle and place between two layers of paper towels.
Press the circle flat with a hot iron.
Make a bow around the stapled edges with the three 18-inch lengths of yarn.
