DIY Mod Nature Loom 01:17

Create a mod nature loom with an embroidery hoop and pretty plants.

Materials Needed

  • wooden embroidery hoop (only one side)
  • black permanent marker
  • white sewing thread
  • craft knife
  • foraged foliage, pre-dried leaves and moss

Step 1: Color Hoop

Color the embroidery hoop with a permanent marker.

Step 2: Make Notches

Use a craft knife to make shallow notches all around the hoop, about 1/4 inch apart.

Step 3: Add Thread

Tie thread to one side of the wooden hoop. Wind it around the hoop in place once then wrap it around the opposite side letting the string rest in a notch. Make sure it’s pulled 26 tight and then wind it around in place. Repeat going from side to side to create your own loom design. We made a fan-shaped loom but almost any net-like string up will work. Once you’re finished, tie the string off and cut off any excess to keep it neat. 

Step 4: Weave Foliage

Gather foliage and pre-dried florals. You may want to work with only dried foliage to extend the life of your wreath forever. Use dense foliage to create a base. We used wild sage. Weave into one side of the loom to create a crescent moon shape. Weave in a wide blade of grass to add a straight modern edge to the arrangement. Add dried moss and twigs for variety. Tweak the design until you love it.

Step 5: Hang + Enjoy
