I finally got around to making my DIY warp weights and I LOVE THEM! They are quick and easy to make - and the best part .. they only cost a few dollars each to make! I am so excited to share the instructions with you all.


SUPPLIES

  1. Wooden Spools (I bought these exact ones from Amazon for $11 - unfortunately they have increased in price - but I'm sure you can source cheaper ones that are similar.) https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07X7TSXRM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

  2. Small Screw Eyes - 17/32" https://www.homehardware.ca/en/14-pack-2165-zinc-plated-small-screw-eyes/p/2362071

  3. Eye Bolt with Nut - 1/4" x 3" https://www.homehardware.ca/en/14-x-3-zinc-eye-bolt-with-nut/p/2407032

  4. Two needle nose pliers

  5. Optional - "S" hooks or anything you can find to add more weight if needed - try fishing weights!

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Using the pliers, gently bend open the screw eyes so that you can easily slide in your warp thread.

  2. Screw in the screw eyes into the top and bottom of the spool. I lined mine up one on top of the other.

  3. Insert the eye bolt with nut, from the bottom and tighten the bolt.

  4. To use: Tie your warp end onto the bottom screw eye to secure. Wrap the extra thread around the spool. To keep the thread from unraveling - secure first by looping around the bottom screw eye, the around the top screw eye. Add additional weight through the loop of the eye bolt if necessary.
