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!

Supplies 

  • tree stump
  • screws & screwdriver 
  • fishing line or string
  • outside material (sticks/flowers/long grasses/weeds/feathers/moss)
  • yarn (optional)
  • scissors

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!

We would love to see what your tree stump weavings, use #SCWBeth2018 or #primepestga to tag us in your photos!

Happy Crafting and we will see you back here next week for Week 5 “Tissue Paper Art!”
