W e a v i n g : S i m p l e W o o d e n L o o m

These little wooden looms are basically the sturdier version of the cardboard loom I previously made (check out this post and this post to see how to use this loom).   To make these, we used some inexpensive 1/4" thick craft wood and some scrap wood that was just lying around.  Measure out and place marks on each end approximately 3/10" apart and cut the marks with a scroll saw, sand and your little loom is ready to use! Mine are approximately, 6"x7" and 3"x12", but you can make them any size you want. I like the smaller size as it is easy to work and travel with. Coming up in a future post I'll share the first two little weavings I made with these!

C r a f t B r e a k : P e n K i t

This pen kit was a great little gift I received and was quite fun to put together! I love gifts with a DIY element. If you'd like to make your own, find more info on it here.
