If you have a tween or teen girl you know that they really want to get creative and love color. My daughter is constantly asking me for a craft kit to create something. Sure we could buy a rug that’s full of color but what fun is that?
This Make It Real Kit comes with everything a girl needs to make a great colorful rug. It has a cardboard loom with pom poms and tassles, acrylic yarn, rop and a “how to” guide.
At first the instructions seem a bit overwhelming because there are alot of steps. But they are seriously easy to follow and there are so many steps because they walk you through every movement in the creation of a rug.
There are plenty of colors to make your rug your own.
The only difficulty we are having (we have not finished a rug yet) – is that the cardboard arrives folded in quarters. It doesn’t exactly lay flat while you are trying to weave with it. It keeps folding up.
This particular project makes a rug – which can be used on the floor or proudly displayed on a wall. I know my daughter definitely wants to have this on the wall – she has no desire to have anyone step on it!
It will take a little while to complete the entire project but it is a simple over/under hand weaving technique – it just takes time.
Designed for ages 8 and up – perfect addition to your holiday list!
