Cut 3 strands of yarn in desired color, each about 16" (40.5cm) long. Hold strands of yarn together and fold in half. Use crochet hook to draw fold through jump ring, forming a loop. Draw ends of yarn through this loop and pull to tighten.
Divide strands into 3 groups of 2 strands each and braid together for about 1" (2.5cm). Knot strands together. Thread 3 strands at a time into sharp needle and draw needle through one or more baubles as desired.
