Looking for an easy project that will fill a good amount of time for your older children during the Summer? How about giving this easy round DIY weaving loom a try? It’s simple to put together and learn but depending on the size of embroidery hoops you get, could take quite a while to finish. It’s a great boredom buster either at home or on the road!
Step One. Tie your first yarn loop on the embroidery hoop and then begin winding around until the entire circle is covered. It doesn’t have to be perfect but just remember to try and keep the spacing as even as possible and end with an odd amount of rows.
Step Four. If you’d like, you can switch up the look of each row with different DIY weaving methods. You can see that I did something a little different in the picture below. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out but I love it!
And that’s it – your DIY weaving loom is finished! It sounds really easy but trust me, your kids will be well entertained for quite a while. I worked on mine for an hour or so on three different days so this could potentially take a young child with smaller hands and attention spans a month to complete.
