- 1 sheet of colored construction paper 5''x10''
- assorted colored construction paper cut in 1''x 10''(for weaving)
We folded 5''x10'' piece of construction paper in half to make cutting easier. Like that.
Then make a number of cuts like this( up to u how wide or narrow you want to make them, ours were about 1'' each).
Next step. We unfolded the paper and started weaving in the strips of the colored construction paper creating a symmetrical design
When we finished weaving we glued two parallel strips on one side of the rug to hold the strips in place. Ready! Turn it to the other side and you can put your new rug to good use. This is the finished product.
You can change the sizes of both the base and the strips accordingly to come out with different rugs for different purposes.
