To make these nature looms, we used three 12" painters sticks purchased online. (They also have these in the paint section of your local hardware store.) Once you have all of the materials listed above in front of you, start by drilling holes in all three sticks. We made about six holes on each stick using a ¼” drill bit. Next, take a piece of sand paper and sand down the areas around the holes to make sure there are no splinters or sharp edges. Next you are going to glue your sticks together in the shape of a triangle.
Once dry, drill an additional hole in the top of your triangle (through both pieces of wood) to tie a piece of twine for hanging. Then you are ready to set up your loom. Weave your twine through each hole on the loom. You can make this web in all sorts of ways- just make sure you are crisscrossing as much as possible. Once you are happy with the web, tie off your twine tightly.
Now you are ready to weave. We bought flowers at our local farmers market but you can also just collect blooms and leaves from your yard or neighborhood. Fill the loom with your findings and hang in a place you can enjoy. These also dry really beautifully and make awesome gifts for the ones you love.
Happy weaving! Share your creations with us on Instagram by tagging @lazydogrestaurants and using the hashtag #thebiscuitblog. Have a wonderful weekend y'all.
