Woven Key Rings
These Woven Keyrings are a great craft for Camp activity for both boys and girls. The lesson in weaving will stay with them for other projects.
3 Yards of Flat Cord
Cut two 54". pieces of flat cord. Pull them through a key ring to the center of the cord. Cross the cords holding them perpendicular to each other. (fig. A).
Fold strand 1 to opposite side leaving a small loop; (fig. B). Fold strand 3 to opposite side leaving a small loop. Hold strands in place with one hand.
With your other hand, weave strand 2 over strand 3 and under strand 1. Weave strand 4 over strand 1 and under strand 3; (fig. C) Pull tightly. Continue until you have about 4" braid. Tie off securely and trim.
