Wall decoration - Circular weaving with grape vines
|Wall decoration - Circular weaving with grape vines|
I tried circular weaving. When you don’t want to spend money on a wooden or plastic circular loom use what you have around your house. For my first circular weaving I used grape vines.
They are easy to model when they are fresh and after they dry stay strong to support your project.
- Grape vines
- Yarn – different colors
- White thread for the warp
I made a circle out of grape vines (D = 23cm). My circle is an actual wreath so it looks bigger and better. When the circle is dry tie your thread around the grape vines. When you are done secure the thread.
I didn’t follow a pattern when I started to weave my yarn. I started with white and then changed it along the way. My white thread is a thin thread, so the middle looks better.
Because my warp wasn’t perfect, I got to make a great pattern. Sometime an imperfect begging can lead to something beautiful.
Have you tried circle weaving or weaving in general? I started to love it. Tell me about your experiences, leave a link to your projects.
