Today’s DIY Friday features weaving, on a simple handloom made from a picture frame.While it’s much smaller than a full size loom, it has the advantage of being portable You can use it to make small projects in an afternoon, or as a prop for your character when they have some down time.
While fabric flowers can last for years, there is pleasure in wearing your local weeds that can’t be matched. (Assuming you aren’t allergic, and you collected them somewhere you had permission…) Anywho, check out this delightful DIY flower crown!
