In this simple project, we use paper to create the scarf. The paper acts as the loom as well as the yarn.

You can make the strips as thin or as thick as you want the thicker the strips the less time it will take and the less patterned the scarf will be.

  • Scissors



  • Cut a piece of paper in half lengthwise to give you a long thin rectangle.
  • Snip along the shorter edges of the A4 page to create a loose thread tassel effect
  • Fold one of your pieces of paper in half, lengthways.
  • Use scissors to cut from the folded edge towards the opposite edge.
  • Repeat the cutting with regular spaces between each cut. Unfold your paper.
  • Cut your other papers into strips along the short edge these will be used to create the pattern.
  • Weave one of the strips into your larger paper – over, under, over-under, over-under.
  • Repeat with the next strip (different colour) but this time under, over, under, over.
  • Repeat until you have filled the whole space.
