Shells, stones, sticks, leaves - these and much more are collected by children during their walks. This time it was pine cones, chestnuts and the sunflower seeds from our raised bed.
We have chosen the weaving with chestnuts from various chestnut handicrafts - it is quite simple.
You need to::
- a few chestnuts
- chestnut drills
- wool remnants
It's that simple:
When the chestnuts are fresh, drilling goes very well. Drill a few holes in the chestnut with a chestnut drill and put the toothpicks all around on one line.
The chestnut now looks a little like a star. You put the thread end on the underside of the chestnut and start weaving now and around the chestnut. The thread runs once under the rod and is wrapped once around it. The thread leads from the top to the next rod.
The weaving frame can now be filled as densely and colourfully as desired. Tighten the thread remnants on the underside, knot and cut off.
Now they are finished, the woven chestnuts, which also look a bit like colourful spiders.
Have fun with it!
