Overview

Weavers and handcrafters rejoice! This complete guide to coconut palm frond weaving features eleven fun and beautiful projects to keep your hands busy. Beginners will find the photographic instructions easy to follow in creating functional and ornamental weaving projects to give as gifts or keep for themselves. Make a coconut calabash-shaped basket as a decorative bowl for fruits, or weave a coconut hat for a day at the beach. Children will love to play with woven little animals such as an angelfish, grasshopper, or bird. Other projects include a variety of baskets and a pretty coconut rose.

For at least 4,000 years, coconuts and their fronds have been a useful and important staple for Polynesian cultures, especially Hawaiians, who developed coconut palm frond weaving into a skillful craft. Finally, coconut palm frond weaving can be learned in a do-it-yourself style and satisfy a weaver's need to turn simple fronds into his or her own work of art with this step-by-step guide.

    Preparing for Easter

    I will be hosting family for the first time this Easter Sunday and I want a fun activity for the family to participate in. I thought about the crosses we often make with the fronds given out on Palm Sunday and figured we could do something bigger. I looked around at the various books and thought this and Palmetto Braiding and Weaving were the best bets. With two books we can try out different projects. I'll let you know if one proves to be much better than the other!
