If you have even basic knitting skills, this adorable plush monster is an easy project to take on – and it’s sure to please the little ones in your life. The secret is that it only involves a little actual knitting. “By knitting or crocheting a dense rectangle you can bring to life a cute monster for play or decoration,” Reynoso says. 

The best part about this craft is that it’s easy to customize based on your recipient’s favorite colors and your monster vision, says Reynoso. Don’t forget: You’ll need to come up with a cute (or scary!) monster name.
