DIY Wall Hanging
I love DIY wall hangings because you don't need any crazy technique to create something beautiful! It's much easier than you think. Full video tutorial with two other options is down below!
Gather your materials: yarn in whatever thickness and color you want, a skinny wooden rod, scissors and hot glue. I use twine to create the hanger for this wall hanging.
Cut your yarn whatever length you like when you fold it in half.
Grab your rod, fold your piece of yarn in half to find the middle and loop it over the rod.
Once you pull it over the rod, take the two end pieces and feed it through.
Pull it tight and repeat this step until you fill the entire rod!
Alternate with other colors to create a pattern or leave it one color. Using different thicknesses will bring more texture to it. I used various thicknesses but wish I went thicker!
To create where it can hang off of, add a dab of hot glue to each end.
Connect a single piece of whatever yarn, twine, ribbon or whatever end's to each side.
I wanted to add more texture so I decided to braid some of the yarn together.
When I stepped back, I wanted to give it a haircut so I cut the yarn to make it come to a point. Don't feel the need to trim it but if you do decide, work slow and step back and look at it a lot to ensure you're cutting it the way you are thinking. I screwed mine up by not stepping back and checking.
The possibilities are endless and how simple!?
