Of course, making a wall hanging is a must! It’s a super stylish way to display your weaving skills and is oh so fun to make. I used a raw wood twig as a hanger which is a fun twist for this project.
It’s easy to use a simple tabby weaving pattern while making a wall hanging and focus your style choices for which yarn – the color and texture you use. Which makes it a great project for any skill level.
Jewelry is such a cool way to make and wear small woven projects. Starting with a small weave, like a piece of jewelry, is ideal because the larger the object – the longer it will take. That makes this DIY Woven Necklace one of the faster projects on this list. You can even weave gorgeous beads and gemstones into it to make something both cool and upscale.
