- An old t-shirt or other material like fleece
- Tennis ball
- Cut an old t-shirt or fleece (or other cloth) into strips about 2 inches wide and 3 feet long.
- Cut holes in opposite ends of tennis balls (available at the dollar store).
- Thread three strips of fabric through the tennis ball and knot each set of “tails” right up next to the tennis ball to prevent it from slipping along your braid.
- Braid each tail out 6 to 12 inches.
- Knot the braid to finish it.
