Binding two sticks together with masking tape. Draw lines every 5mm interval. try not to leave any part that is not consistent. This is the base step for our hanging. 

Pay more attention on the frame shape.

Saw 1cm depth grooves along every line with a handsaw, tear off the masking tape and polish the surface of sticks with emery paper. Make the surface as smooth as possible. This would make it easier for twining the yarn in later steps.

Connect four sticks in rectangular shape with glue. Make it strong enough if you want your wall hanging can be used more than years.  You can try the stability of the shape using your own ways. Hmm, try not to break it. Or you have to start it over.

Twine the yarn from grooves we have saw before in S-shape( pay attention to tighten the yarn ).

It will look not so nice if the yarn has been twined too loose. You must have such experience before. Make a Make a knot at the end and cut off the redundant part.

Twine the yarn around the stick shuttle. Shuttle over and under each alternate strand in order to weave your favorite patterns. Also, you can have another color of yarn to shuttle nice patterns. White, yellow, blue yarns are used in this tutorial. You can have some other choices. It is very important to weave white cloud pattern by using coarse yarn. You can see the pattern in my video.
