Ella and Mya en­joy weav­ing shapes from left­over yarn to cre­ate pretty art­works

EllA And myA have fun cre­at­ing sim­ple pieces of dec­o­ra­tive art­work, weav­ing yarn into dif­fer­ent shapes. Colour­ful wool or cord is criss-crossed to fill the out­line of a star or heart picked out in sil­very nails on a wooden base. Af­ter plac­ing a draw­ing of their shape onto a smooth of­f­cut of wood, such as a floor­board, the girls ask an adult to care­fully knock in the nails. They can then at­tach the cord and make their own pat­tern by wind­ing it around the nail posts as they draw it from side to side.
