Get your feet wet in the weaving world without dropping a bunch of money on a fancy new loom. You can create fun weavings with stuff that you have around the house! I can’t think of a better way to spend the afternoon than having fun with yarn and exercising your creative muscles.
Loom With Combs
It may sound like a "hair brained" idea but you can easily create a sturdy DIY weaving loom using a couple of combs and some scrap pieces of wood.
Hula Hoop Rug Rag
If you have an old hula hoop lying around from a past fitness craze, you can put it to good use again by using it create a colorful rag rug.
Picture Frame Weaving
A plain old picture frame provides the perfect opprtunity for a fun day of weaving. As an added bonus, it's easy to hang up on the wall when you're done with it!
It doesn't get much more common than the humble straw. Put a few together to create a super simple loom that can create cute bracelets.
Stick Loom Weaving
Take a walk outside, get some fresh air, and grab a cool stick while you're out there. Stick weaving is a great way to incorporate natural elements into your weavings!
Weaving on Crochet
A plain crochet panel serves as the perfect backdrop for a colorful bit of woven geometric shapes in this eye-catching wall hanging. I imagine that this technique could also work with knitting!
Weaving on a Knitting Loom
.If you have any old knitting looms knocking about the place, then you are going to want to find them and dust them off for this fun weaving DIY!
Build your own Peg Loom
With a few dowels and a bit of scrap wood you can create your own peg loom. It's sturdy enough to hold up to multiple uses and it creates a unique looking weaving.
Mini Cardboard Loom
Don't throw out that shipping box yet! Cut it up instead and turn it into mini cardboard looms. You could even make a whole series of mini weavings and sew them together to create all sorts of things.
Recycled Plastic Looms
With berry season on its way out, I bet you have a few plastic berry containers to spare. Use the built in drainage holes on the lid of the boxes to create these unique circular weavings.
