READY TO MAKE YOUR LOOM???? OUT OF CARDBOARD????
Here's a time lapse video showing you how to do it!
It took me roughly 20 minutes to do this (including a few breaks where I took socks out of Sparty's mouth 🙄🐕), and it's a really simple thing to do, promise.
> Get a rectangle (or cut a rectangle) piece of cardboard, mine is 9"x12"
> Mark another rectangle towards the middle of the piece, 2" from the top/bottom and 1.5" from the sides.
> Mark lines on the tops and bottoms (this is where your warp string will be wrapped) roughly 1/8"–1/4" between each other. Keep these lines parallel to the inside rectangle you just drew
> Cut slights on those edges you just marked. I started with an exacto knife but moved to a pocket knife for this step.
> Cut that inside rectangle out!
> With that smaller piece of cardboard, measure 1" wide and cut 2 smaller pieces from it.
> Hot glue the 2" pieces 1/8" from the middle on the top and bottom.
It's a lot of measuring, double checking, measuring again, and cutting.
I used a really thick piece of cardboard for this, and the measurements can all be adjusted based on the size of the piece you want to create—you can make it smaller, wider, or square-ish.
Making your own loom and using it as your first one will give you an idea if you like the craft. If you don't like to weave, you didn't lose a ton money, but if you realize you like it (like I did), upgrade to a wooden loom!
LMK if you have any questions!
