Take apart the embroidery hoops. With the larger hoop, use the one that has the hardware. For the smaller hoop, use the smooth hoop without the hardware. Set aside extra parts for another project.

Cover both hoops entirely with yarn. Join the hoops together at one side so the space between the two hoops begins to look like a crescent moon. Attach with more yarn or hot glue.

Once you have joined the two yarn covered hoops, begin wrapping both hoops in a random pattern with more yarn.

There is no real rhyme, reason or pattern to the design. Add as many or as few wraps as you want.
