I have been seeing branch weavings popping up on blogs for the past year or so and always loved the natural and imperfect look. The other day, on our walk to the market, I finally found the perfect branch. (You just need one with a healthy Y shape.)
I brought it home, ran it under the hose, let it bake in the sun for a few hours and then set about making my weaving.
I used twine for the original back and forth (called the warp) and then some multicolored yarn that I had left over from another project for the woven portion (called the weft - unless I have those backwards).
It took less than 30 minutes and turned out pretty sweet. A perfect fall project, for sure.
It's currently hanging in our bedroom next to the bathroom door that is thisclose to having an external sliding door in place.
ps. here is another weaving project from this summer.
