I love weaving!  This project was so much fun!  What a great way to end the year.  My third graders did tree weavings this year.  They had to pick a season, then they painted their paper plate to match the season.  I wanted to tone down the colors to go with our nature colored yarn, so they had to paint the whole plate brown or black first, then they painted the colors over top.  They cut the slits to make the warp strings.  Next, they wrapped the loom with yarn to create the warp strings.  They used the excess yarn to wrap up from the bottom to make the trunk.  Then, they used yarn to weave and create the top of the trees.  They turned out amazing!  I can't wait to do this project again next year!
