Craft projects that don’t require too many supplies, that cost a lot, or make you head to the store multiple times are always appreciated, especially when it’s cold and snowy out. Weaving falls in that category at our house. Looms can be made with basic items you’ll find laying around; if you’ve got a scrap piece of cardboard, you’ve got the makings of a loom! This week’s roundup is all about weaving, just in time for quieter days after the holidays.
