Woven Key Rings

These Woven Key Rings 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.
