I LOVE IT. It's kinda hard to get started, (I only say that because I haven't actually even started but this new and unknown world of weaving just looks kinda hard right?!) So I plan to make myself a loom and give it a full blown shot but for now here is a very simple, almost self explanatory 'faux weaving' or 'tie some string on a stick' DIY project that is sure to create a little texture in your home decor.
Take a stick, 2 skeins of yarn (I chose 2 of the same brand that were only one shade different for texture. you can see the color difference in the below image) and some scissors.
Each knotted grouping is made up of two pieces of long yarn and then folded in half.
Mine was made from about 60 groupings so start off by cutting about 120 long pieces of yarn the same length.
Combine two pieces of long string, one from each color and fold in half and tie on to the stick.
Then you can cut whatever shape into it. For mine i separated them into 3 groupings of 20 and cut the outer groupings a tad shorter than the middle section.
you could also make a gradual decline/incline or a bunting flag shape or a V shape. I think it would be fun to fray the edges a bit too.
Easy Peasy right!!? Now go on and tie some string on a stick!
