– yellow paper
– thick thread
– scissors
– red pen
– a piece of white thick paper


Step 1

Cut a rectangle of the yellow paper, about 7 cm wide.

Mark the middle of it by two lines along the rectangle.



Step 2

Using the scissors, cut narrow bands from the edge to the first line…

… like this.

Repeat on the other side.


Step 3

Start rolling the paper…

… until it looks like this.

Bind it using the thread.

It doesn’t look really like a sheaf of hay…

To correct that, spread a little of the upper part and the lower part. Now it looks right.


Step 4

Write on the piece of white paper “In Everything give Thanks”…

… and fix it on top of the sheaf of hay.
