DIY Inspire to Loom

Thursday, July 22, 2010

I want to share with you my oh so anticipated craft adventure. I have recently discovered the flower loom. I remember doing something similar to the loom with my mom, making woven hot pads
out of old fabrics with the square loom.

So, I ventured to Hobby Lobby in hopes of finding a cheap medium sized flower loom. Of course, the only loom they had came in a back of 3 for $30.00 NO thank you. I came home and searched luck...then EBAY and whabam! I found three different size looms for only $9.00. The looms even come with two vintage flower project books
(I was very excited about that).

I also picked up a huge bag of multi-colored yarn from
the thrift store for only $2.00.

I am so excited for my looms to come in the mail!
I am planning to make some hair pieces and brooches,
and possibly attempt a blanket.
I even found an ETSY seller online who recycles plastic shopping bags into beautiful pieces of art.
What an inexpensive way to create something beautiful.
Reduce, reuse, recycle for a sustainable future.
I know I avoid plastic bags whenever possible, but this is a neat way to recycle those you already have.
