1/8″ Lacing needle
Yarn (various colors)
1. Choose your desired size for your cardboard hoop (the one pictured is about 6 1/2″ across), and using a compass (or freehand) create your outer circle. Make another circle within the larger one, so that the hoop is about 1″ wide all around. Cut out your cardboard hoop and punch a hole about 1″ apart all the way around.
3. With your lacing needle and a long piece of yarn, tie a knot on the back of one hole and go across the front of the hoop into another hole. Pull the yarn across the back of the cardboard into another hole, and stretch it again across the front. Go back and forth until you have gone through all the holes. Tie a knot at the back of the hoop to begin, and another knot to end and secure the yarn. If desired, pick another color yarn and repeat weaving across and back through the hoop again. There’s no wrong pattern when creating your weave, so allow your child create their own pattern by playing connect the dots with the yarn and holes. Tie a small piece of yarn at the top through two holes, so you have a loop for hanging.
