Mini Nature Loom
The Nature Loom we featured in our July 2016 Issue has been one of the most popular crafty makes we’ve made for the magazine and while the loom itself wasn’t too complicated to build, it is a little on the big side for lots of people. So we wanted to show you a more accessible version, that’s great for crafting with little people too.
- Branch with a fork in it (trimmed)
- Cotton yarn or string
- Flowers, leaves and grasses
You can use ribbons, yarn, strips of paper or material in your loom as well.
Creating the warp
Attach yarn to one side, knot in place.
Wrap yarn over and under the opposite fork twice.
Creating the weft
Weaving up and under your warp run a length of raffia down one side of the warp and up the other.
Begin filling the warp in with grasses and flowers.
You can see in the photos that I started by weaving in some grasses.
Fill in with flowers until you’re happy with the result, trimming any stalks that are protruding.
