Nature Weaving

Shared by Garden & Nutrition Educator Cristina


  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Yarn or String
  • Pencil or Marker
  • Long Plant Materials (e.g. weed, flower, stem)


Step 1. Cut  short slits in the border of the cardboard around 1inch apart. Do this on both ends of the cardboard, making sure the slits line up with each other.

Step 2. Make a knot at the end of the yarn and place it in one of the top slits of the cardboard; put the other end of the yarn in the bottom slit of the cardboard (make a second knot to secure). Repeat this with every slit of the cardboard.

Step 3. With your plants part start weaving, passing the plant material under the yarn and then up and over the next yarn. Once the plant material is intertwined, gently push it up to the top of the cardboard.

Step 4. Continue to weave plants and move them up gently until the cardboard is filled. Share your creations!
