UPDATE: Go HERE for my CD Weaving Tutorial I think I'm addicted. Making these has been so much fun!
I've been weaving on CDs. I wanted to come up with a weaving project for my Art Club classes that we could do in a shorter time than when we've built looms.
Weaving with beads and wire was awesome...but after making this one, I decided it wasn't going to work with my Art Club kids. Wire can be a bit difficult for kids to manage.
But yarn was wonderful! I have a bin of yarn, most of it thrifted (Value Village), so we had the variety that made this so fun.
The CDs are ones I'd collected from kids a couple of years ago. When I asked for old CDs for a collage project, the kids brought in STACKS of them! So this was a good project using supplies I already had on hand.
These are the ones I made- I really had so much fun making them, and I kept wanting to try different yarn combinations. I'll post the AWESOME ones the kids made later this week.
