- 4 branches
- 3 skeins of reclaimed chiffon ribbon yarn - preferably in warm colors like red, orange, and yellow.
- Hemp yarn or floral wire
Step One:Place your four branches in a star pattern, with one branch horizontal, one branch vertical, and the other two branches resting diagonally in different directions. Secure these branches together with twine, or my favorite - floral wire for extra strength and then I cover that with some of our natural hemp yarn.
Step Two:Weave your chiffon through the branches, starting from the center. Before you start weaving, meditate on how you want your sun to look. Do you want to start with the deepest color? What about the lightest color? Do you want to include bells, crystals, beads, or charms to your ribbon? Once you’ve committed to a plan, knot your first ribbon to one of your branches and have at it!
Tip: If you want to add any charms or extra bits, you can feed them through the ribbon BEFORE you start weaving, or add them to the tail end of the ribbon once you get to the end!
When switching colors, snip your ribbon and knot tightly at the back of the project to hide the knot.
Step Three: Wrap until you have a stunning sun!
