New finds to brighten up your living space.
Good news, aspiring DIY-ers. The champion of easy and trendy decor is here—and it’s as simple as over-under, over-under. Say hello to exotic and ever-so-stylish loom weaving! We’ve got loads of project ideas that’ll help you get inspired plus a full step-by-step tutorial.
Loop yarn around top left peg as shown, and knot to secure.
String yarn onto pegs, alternating top and bottom as shown—this will form the warp, or strands that you will weave your working yarn (weft) onto.
When you’ve reached the bottom right peg, knot yarn again to secure. Note: Although yarn is doubled back to form a knot, treat both strands of knotted portion as one strand when weaving.
Tie lengths of yarn onto warp using rya knots. For bottom row, pull knots all the way down to rest under pegs. Continue making rows of knots as desired.
Alternate rows of knots in varied yarn colors as desired. When using thinner-weight yarn, group multiple strands together and knot onto warp as shown.
Remove finished tapestry from loom. To secure weaving, cut through center of all loops at top, leaving two loose yarn ends where loop was. Then tie loose ends together along top of tapestry.
Stitch through top of tapestry and around rod or branch to hang.
