Wonderful Weaving!

 Creating weaving looms with styrofoam plates.  You can do this at home too!
Using a ruler and permanent marker, we made marks 1 1/2" apart around the perimeter of the plates.
Then we wrapped the plate in yarn making a "star-like" pattern or "spider web". 
We used the "Tapestry Weave" going over and under each warp yarns.
The children were very creative in choosing their color combinations!

These weavings will be our new classroom rug!

I love using frames to help my displays... I even place photos of the children working on their artwork in them.  I find frames of all kinds in thrift stores and garage sales! Spray paint them for a new look or more color.
