We saw this fantastic paper plate weaving tutorial on by Cassie Stephens
and decided to make our own version using wool, thick thread, ribbon and beads.
We decorated our paper plate 'loom' with sticky stars and sticky dots, but you could also try painting it or leave it plain.
: 1 hour
: 5 to 10s
(The thicker the yarn, the quicker and easier the weaving is.)

Keep going to create a spider web effect
Ribbon and beads added extra interest
I think the end weaving looks great displayed on the plate. However you could also cut the 'spokes' and knot the ends to create a circular mat without the paper plate.
