I remember twig weaving at camp years ago, finding different shaped branches or making t’s and x’s to weave with. I loved it and I loved hanging up the results of my efforts when I got home. Now that I’m a mama, I’ve got twig weaving on my list of things to do with my kids this summer. I love all the ideas out there as well, new shapes, new materials. The perfect summer afternoon project!
Branch Weaving – Instructables
This is truly beautiful, something I’d love to have hanging on my wall as a piece of art. The fine weaving here is probably more of an older child or adult level project but a similar look could be achieved with fatter, brightly colored yarn.
Maybe something a little like this?

DIY Hanging God’s Eye – Petunia Pickle Bottom Blog
I love love LOVE this giant Gods eye weaving. The colors, the wide logs and especially the varied use of materials – the puff balls are especially fun! This would make a unique alternative to a door wreath to add a little color to your entryway but could also be hung out in a tree or over a fireplace with stunning results.
Giant Sun – Twig and Toadstool
Here’s another oversized weaving with a totally different look. I love the wide strips and can see using homemade t shirt yarn or strips of fabric to achieve this kind of look. It’s so bright and cheerful, I love it!
