Mixed media textile weaving for kids

This fun and easy mixed media weaving artwork is one of the projects you can make with our EMBROIDERY & WEAVING craft box. I love all the different patterns and textures you can make just with weaving different yarn and beads through the mesh base. The craft box includes enough mesh to make 2 small panels like this or one large artwork.

Weaving is a fantastic project to develop children's fine motor skills and finger strength. The projects in this craft box are suitable for ages 4 years +.


  • Mesh base
  • A variety of different colour and texture yarns
  • Wooden beads
  • Pipe cleaners
  • An extra large tapestry needle and embroidery needle

All the materials are available as part of our EMBROIDERY & WEAVING craft box.


Thread your yarn onto a large tapestry needle and begin weaving in and out of the mesh base to make a pattern. Change colour yarns to make beautiful multi colour designs. To add the beads you will need to use a thinner yarn and a smaller embroidery needle that fits through the holes in the beads. (All the needles required are provided in our craft kit!)
