Create your own weaving loom for less than $20! This budget-friendly project is perfect for the crafty person in your life—even if that person is you.
– 1×3 select pine board – panel board nails – 1.5 inch screws – ruler or tape measure – pencil – hammer
Put the piece of wood down to size. Then, start laying out the pieces to create the loom shape. I put the 2 longer pieces on the bottom and 2 of the shorter pieces on top.
Next, begin screwing the pieces together. Just two screws, diagonal from each other, seemed to work really well for each of the 4 corners.
You can always do 4 screws per corner if you feel like that’s better, though. Mine felt really secure after just two screws in each corner, though.
Once the base is complete, you can either add legs or skip this one and move onto the next step. If you’re adding legs, you’ll use the remaining two 24 inch pine pieces for the legs.
Flip the loom base over so that the long vertical pieces are on top, then measure 12 inches from the top, and attach the hinges to both the loom base and the top of the legs.
Next, it’s time to add the finishing nails. Make sure the loom is facing right-side up. Make a mark every 1/4 inch or 1/3 inch, all the way across the top and bottom of the horizontal piece of wood.
