I don't know about you, but we seem to have alot of loom bands hanging around the house.
I though I would share this creative way to reuse them to make a woven heart.
I created this woven heart using:
- round wood slice (I bought mine from our local wood recycling centre. You could contact a tree surgeon, or maybe use an offcut of wood)
- paper heart template
- small nails
- loom bands, but you could use elastic bands too
First I created a heart template in paper and stuck it to the wood with blu tack. I then tapped the nails in around the shape of the template. Finally I looped the loom bands onto the nails. It's as simple as that.
My design is super-simple, so you could adapt the idea to make it more intricate. You could fill the centre of the heart with more nails and criss cross the loom bands. Or maybe go for a more elaborate shape. How about using a whole rainbow of loom band colours?
I am really pleased with the way my DIY project turned out. I'm planning on making some more to put on our allotment. I may try a star shape next or my initials. I'd love to hear your ideas...
