Weaving paper is a basic elementary skill that’s important but is no joke to teach. Take that simple skill to the next level with this concept of weaving together two similar paintings.
This project takes weaving for kids to a whole new level. Not only will your kids learn some basic weaving skills but alllll of the materials used are 100% upcycled. That’s right- a zero cost art project because all of the materials were headed to to the trash anyways! Save a water bottle and an old t-shirt and get ready for a new kind of water bottle craft!
This weaving could just as easily be done with construction paper or even recycled old art work. But bright spring colors, a few simple watercolor techniques, and freshly painted Easter egg shapes make this paper weaving project really shine!
This woven paper Christmas tree craft is such a winner because the supply list is super minimal, there are lots of great basic skills involved, and the finished product is just so interesting! You’ll love to add this Christmas tree to your holiday mantle!
These DIY coasters are an excellent intro to textile weaving and have a super cute, gifting worthy finished product. But maybe the best part is that they can be made from 100% up-cycled materials which means they are free to make. Totally free crafting- woohoo!
