Use craft sticks and rubber bands to make a woven wall hanging.

Products Used:

Other Tools and Materials Needed:

  • Rubber Bands
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

Project Steps:

  1. Step 1:

    Glue four Creativity Street® Craft Sticks together at ends. Make sure ends touch each other so that the square is as wide as can be. Let dry for about an hour.

  2. Step 2:

    Slide at least nine rubber bands onto square as shown. Spread them out evenly.

  3. Step 3:

    Cut strips of paper about 7" long by varying widths (1/4" to 1/2"). Weave strands of paper into the rubber bands and pull to center. Push all strips up to make room for as many more as possible.

  4. Step 4:

    Continue weaving strips of paper until the board is full. Trim ends. Add a string hanger to display, if desired, by tying the ends to the corners.
