We made this cool loom with our kids, which is a big hit for in between.
The circular weaving looks beautiful and does not take too long. So even younger children quickly have a beautiful finished ornament in their hands.
Even these simple materials are probably at your fingertips.
- coloured wool leftovers
- washi tape or coloured adhesive
tape - beads (the thread hole must not be too small)
- possibly embroidery needle
It's that simple:
Look for different circle objects (glasses, cups, bowls ...) and draw them on the cardboard. Then cut out the circles.
Using a pencil, draw an odd number of spokes on your wheel and cut a notch about 1 cm deep using scissors. But it also works with an even number of spokes, as we did with our picture instructions - here you only have to make a backstitch at the end of a row of circles so that the next row of weaves is offset again.
Now glue a piece of wool to the back of your circle and pull it over the notch to the front.
Now thread the thread exactly opposite backwards and fill the remaining notches in a star shape.
If the threads form a star, glue the end yarn to the back.
4. Now tie the wool you want to start with through the middle.
Now weave from the centre starting in a circle.
For small hands thicker wool is easier to weave. Ideal
for on the go 🙂
Adds beads as desired and changes the wool several times.
When you're done, glue the wool to the back.
This is a very simple way to weave beautiful circles, which is not only fun for children but also for adults.
Wish you your family badala
