Today we are going to be creating an “Outside Weaving.” We will be using a few more supplies this week and it will require a little more prep work. Most of the materials you will probably already have on hand. Let’s get started!
- tree stump
- screws & screwdriver
- fishing line or string
- outside material (sticks/flowers/long grasses/weeds/feathers/moss)
- yarn (optional)
First you are going to want to screw the screws into the tree stump. We screwed 6 screws into the tree stump around the top arc & 6 screws into the bottom arc of the tree stump (for a total of 12 screws).
You should adjust the # of screws for your particular tree stump. Below just gives you an example…
Wrap the string/fishing line around the screws creating a pattern similar to the graphic.
Collect your outside materials and yarn and start weaving into the fishing line using a “under/over” pattern.
Keep adding to it all summer long and see how big your outside weaving creation can get!
Happy Crafting and we will see you back here next week for Week 5 “Tissue Paper Art!”
