Cuddly Creature Weaving

Team GCM member, Gift, shows us how to create a cuddly creature using a homemade loom! This simple weaving craft can be done with recyclable materials found in the home.


  • Yarn
  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Googly eyes or decoration


  1. Mark even spaces on cardboard on both ends
  2. Cut slits about a half-inch on each mark
  3. String the yarn through the slits to make “bars”
  4. Cut the excess strings on the back and tie into a knot
  5. Weave the yarn through the loop (under & over each consecutive string)
  6. Keep weaving until the entire loom is full
  7. Remove the weave from the loom
  8. Cut all the loops 
  9. Tie the loose ends together
  10. Cut off excess strings
  11. Decorate!
