In the past when the students did circle weavings we talked about using
different media to weave as:
different colored wire
feathers
alumium foil
leather
beads
thread
hair

Add more dimension by creating arches, spirals,
We talked about creating fringes and tassels plus wrapping sections of
warp with yarn or other media.
 
Using two to ? florist wires the lenght you want.
Bend them in half around a warp then wrap with yarn or ? then attached end
to another warp or let stand up. Bend the wrapped wire in an interesting
way. Add beads

Creating flowers and balls
Using five to ? florist wires the lenght you want. Bend in half around a
warp then wrap with yarn or ? Knot the yarn around the wire then spread
the wires apart like spokes and start weaving around an odd amount wires.
After weaving around bend wires over backward and create a ball.

Some student created a collage of circle,square,and rectangle weavings and
wrappings.
