Unconventional Weaving Loom Christmas Tree
We’re giving you all the steps to turn a picture frame into a DIY loom—with just a few pieces of hardware (and a little imagination). Check out the steps below! Click to see Weaving Loom Basics Video.
You’ll need: frame, ruler, pencil, hammer, nails, cord, metallic buffing wax and gold leaf.
Start by rubbing entire frame with metallic buffing wax.
Apply gold leaf as desired.
Turn frame over and use ruler to mark every 1/2” across top and bottom of frame, and then hammer nail into each mark.
Knot cord onto first nail. Then string back and forth across frame, wrapping around nails on each end. Secure cord by tying knot on last nail. Now create your own one-of-a-kind weaving! Here, we used different yarn weights and ribbon to create a multi-textural Christmas tree.
