Make Your Own Ruff

Shakespeare for Kids

What you'll need

A yard of 2-inch white adding machine tape
Thin ribbon 
A hole punch


What to do
Fold the paper accordian style at a width of approximately 2 inches. With the paper folded, punch a hole in the middle of the paper. Thread ribbon through the hole. Then, wrap ruff around your neck and tie ribbon at the back.


To make a fancier ruff

Cut the lace edges off of rectangular doilies and glue the lace down the length of the tape. Make sure glue is completely dry before folding and punching.
