Make Your Own Tartan Craft


This very messy craft gives children an idea of how tartan patterns are formed. If you are doing this as a group activity, provide a large collection of ribbons and fabric and you will be surprised how many different variations of tartan you will get!

Make Your Own Tartan Craft

You will need:

Fabric glue


Cut 3 or 4 lengths of ribbon the same length as your fabric and lots of pieces the length of the fabric width.

Glue the long pieces of ribbon along the length of the fabric.

Quickly glue the shorter pieces along the width weaving in and out of the longer pieces. The ribbons will be movable until the glue dries, so you will have to be fairly quick.

When your fabric is dry trim any overhanging ribbons.
