I’d like to be able to give you a step by step guide on how to weave these willow and wool natural Christmas decorations, but I wouldn’t know where to begin!
Basically it’s a very simple weaving activity and if you’d like to have a go at making it, just look very carefully at the photo above and copy it. All you need are pieces of freshly cut willow trimmed to your desired size (ours are around 30cm) and some red wool to tie them together.
We were given one of these by a (then) 12 year old friend of the family who’d made it himself as a Christmas gift for our family. We’ve been making them as small gifts for friends every year since.
What do you think, will you give it a go?
Fab – have made something similar in previous years using dogwood stems and raffia 🙂
What a neat Christmas decoration, maybe we will work on one of these with the grandson when he is over this week. I really like the new blog look.
Thank you Mr H, and hope he enjoys them with you. I have some raffia and red dogwood VP – may try that too, thanks for the tip 🙂
What a lovely gift, will definitely think of doing something like that soon.
