Create a DIY knitting loom with popsicle sticks, then learn how to use it. The knitted cord can be used as a belt or bracelet, hung as a garland in your room, or in craft projects.

We used this awesome tutorial from Red Kite Days to make our looms and teach the kids how they are used. The photos are super close and clear which makes this a very useful tutorial!

Modifications: We used 6 popsicle sticks instead of 4. We also used duct tape along with the washi tape to make a sturdier loom.


You will need the following items to make this Summer Crafts 4 Kids project – available at Ben Franklin Crafts!

  • Craft Cardboard Tube (available by the paper mache boxes)
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Duct Tape – patterned or solid
  • Washi Tape
  • Yarn – Sugar & Cream works great for beginners!

And a very creative group of kids who thought up another way to use the loom:
