Step 1

Step 1

Start off with one horizontal and 13 vertical weaving strips. With glue stick, glue each vertical strip to the horizontal strip across the top. The horizontal strip can either be woven through the vertical strips or glued straight (which is easier for younger children).
Step 2

Step 2

Choose 15 more weaving strips. Weave these strips horizontally through the vertical strips, starting from the top and finishing a few inches from the bottom. Trim the ends of the horizontal strips flush with the vertical strips.
Step 3

Step 3

Use black markers to create Kente design accents.
Step 4

Step 4

Add texture by weaving yarn pieces into the Kente project with a yarn needle. Use scissors to cut the remaining bottom vertical strips to look like fringe.
