Circle weaving

Kids craft activities - circle weaving

This is a fun and easy weaving project for children. (And adults, I enjoyed making this one too!) For younger children use chunky wool or cord so the weaving grows quickly otherwise they may loose interest! You can also add in beads on the threads to decorate.


  • Cardboard circle
  • String
  • A selection of yarn, cord or strips of fabric
  • Scissors
  • Beads (optional)


    Cut cardboard circles, mine were 30cm diameter. Then cut an odd number of slots around the edge.

        Secure wool at the back with tape and start wrapping it around the circle to make spokes.

            On the last spoke, bring the wool to the center and knot around all the threads to secure then together.

              How to do circle weaving

                Start weaving under and over all the way around your circle.
