Before I was able to find a vintage flower loom
I devised my diy version
that works great for simple flower loom flowers.
I love my vintage looms,
because they are so versatile.
But I still use my diy version
to make a bigger sizes than I can with the vintage.
So here goes.
You will need:
*Foam core (corugated cardboard might work
but wouldn't be as sturdy)
*Nails with no heads
*Pen or pencil
* Something round to use as a template
I used a vintage flower loom as my template.
It measures about 4 1/2 - 5 inches across.
It's easier to cut out one corner at a time
rather than the whole circle at once.
And it doesn't have to be perfect!
It really helps to have an inside circle,
for when it comes time to weave the middle of the flower.
This is also when you should mark the nail positions,
twelve evenly spaced.
Add numbers 1-12.
Insert the nails at the tick marks.
Now you can make flowers galore!
