Craft Stick Loom
Developed by: Kathy Barbro, Visual Arts Professional Expert from Dixie Canyon Community Charter Elementary School in Sherman Oaks, CA.
Use craft sticks and rubber bands to make a woven wall hanging.
Glue four Creativity Street® Craft Sticks together at ends. Make sure ends touch each other so that the square is as wide as can be. Let dry for about an hour.
Slide at least nine rubber bands onto square as shown. Spread them out evenly.
Cut strips of paper about 7" long by varying widths (1/4" to 1/2"). Weave strands of paper into the rubber bands and pull to center. Push all strips up to make room for as many more as possible.
Continue weaving strips of paper until the board is full. Trim ends. Add a string hanger to display, if desired, by tying the ends to the corners.
