Large Outdoor Weaving Loom
Along time ago these huge sticks fell in our yard after a hard rain. Can I tell you how much life we have gotten out of them? I’ll just show you.
Okay, this was the only photo I could find, but we have painted the sticks, yarn wrapped, fabric wrapped, and glittered them…
This is how I built it: Frame- tie corners with twine
Wrap up and down tightly with twine.
Wrap side to side with twine.
There is no real right and wrong way to do it. You just want to have enough twine to weave the nature elements into.This is a close up though.
Once the loom was built the kids went on a nature hunt and added sticks, vines, berries, and little little birds to it.
There is no right or wrong to this project. Leave the nature loom out and just keep adding to it with anything feathers, twigs, yarn, leaves… It encourages exploration, discovery, getting outdoors, and creativity. Have fun!
