Weaving is a simple and relaxing project to undertake. You can create large pieces like rugs or smaller pieces like coasters and pot holders. You also don’t need to go out and buy an expensive loom or weaving materials. You probably have everything you need to get started in your home right now. Here are four looms you can make using only recycled materials and two projects you can weave with your recycled loom.

    Very eco-friendly project huh! Hhmmm! Very cool idea too! I might want to try that one as well, especially when I’m traveling and I can’t bring my floor looms on the road. Thanks for this post!
