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 at 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 on the weaving and fringe.
Step 4

Step 4

Use a yarn needle to add texture by weaving yarn accents into the Kente Project.
