DIY Yarn Wall Hanging


I am totally digging this bohemian decor trend with all the macrame wall hangings I am seeing all over Pinterest lately. There are literally hundreds of macrame tutorials on Pinterest but between my job, Craftshop and the kiddos needing me to get them 341 snacks per day, the thought of taking the time to make a macrame wall hanging was giving me hives. So I decided to do a stupid easy DIY yarn wall hanging that only took me about 20 minutes.
I will give you the step by step, even though I don't think you would even need it. Here we go...
Find a cool stick outside. I happened to find this one at my parents house a few weeks ago. Then I strung it up with some string so I could attach my yarn.
Now it is time to start stringing up the yarn. I just eye-balled how long I wanted the yarn to be and then doubled it plus another inch or so. Then I cut as much yarn stings as I wanted. Each yarn string was attached by folding the string in half.
Then looping the folded part around the branch.
Then pulling the long strings of the yarn through the loop.
And pulling tight.
And I did that over and over and over. Here is a photo of my first pass of yarn on the branch so you know what it will look like and you don't give up if you try it and it doesn't look all beautiful right away.
I just kept adding cream and white yarn until I was happy with the volume. Then I added a few pieces of rope and lace. I have a few beaded tassels in the basement that I slipped over the ends and then hung it right on the wall. Crazy easy and looks cute.

    I saw this wall hanging and loved it enough to try to make one of my own. Used thicker wool but found the loops around the 'stick' were droopy. I was wandering if a spot of hot glue would help on the back side of the hanging, to firm up the loops. It looks beautiful, and I hope to hear from you.

      I do think that would help! The thinner yearn doesn’t do the droop thing but I think some hot glue would definitely help!

    Wool and lace, excellent. I love the natural look of boho.
