Have a cardboard box and some popsicle sticks sitting around your house? You’ve already got the basic building blocks for a simple cardboard box loom!
You don’t need to spend tons of money on new equipment just to give weaving a try. In fact, you don’t really need to look beyond your recycle bin. This family-friendly tutorial for creating your own simple cardboard box loom that Rachelle shared on Tinker Lab is perfect for small decorative projects or even an afternoon of crafty fun with your kids!
According to Rachelle, this project was inspired by the book Eco-Friendly Crafting with Kids, by Kate Lilley of Mini-Eco, where you can find even more inspired ways to reuse and repurpose items of all kinds.
