I first saw branch weaving on the blog Natural Suburbia when I was searching for a fun craft to do with my son. He is a nature lover and very much a little artist so I knew this would be a perfect project for him. We went out and searched for the 'perfect' small branch for him to weave on. He already knew how to weave so this was a natural progression for him.
When he was weaving his branch and I saw how much he enjoyed it I really wanted to try it myself on a larger scale. I added a few patterns in my version on the weaving to give the piece extra character.
One could really go all out with branch weaving with detailed patterns. What's even greater is no piece will ever be the same just because of the branch arms and shapes!
All of the patterns used in this weaving project are very basic and easy. They are good for a beginner, even a child with some prior weaving experience.
