I’ve been really loving neutral wood wall hangings, especially with a modern boho style. I decided to make one of my own, and this is what I came up with.
Modern Boho Wall Hanging
To start, I got two wood dowels one slightly larger than the other.
- I attached string to both ends of the larger dowel. This will be what it hangs from.
2.I tied the string in double knots, and then put hot glue over the knot to make sure it didn’t come undone.
3.Once the glue dried I trimmed the excess string.
4.Next I tied the smaller dowel to hang about 1” down.
5.I marked my dowel, starting from the center, where each string would be tied.
6.Then I measured out my 4 strings and used a tape measure to try and make sure the gaps between each layer would be fairly even.
7.I then tied one end of each string to the dowel.
8.Starting from the center string I started stringing the wooden balls.
I used 1/2” and 1” balls.
9.I did an alternating pattern with both sizes, and made sure to glue each double knot to help them hold.
9.I decided to add faux greenery-atatching it using floral wire.
If you may want to change out the greenery i.e. use a pine branch for Christmas, or leaves for fall etc. just use floral wire.
I don’t plant to change out my greenery, so I also used hot glue to hold the wire/greens in place.

This turned out lovely. I really like this creative "free-style" wall hanging ~ simple and attractive. Your instructions are very clear and I definitely want to put an Autumn, Thanksgiving twist on this project and stain the dowels and wood beads. This project really has a lot of possibilities ... Christmas decoration too!
Thank you for sharing AND inspiring!

This gave me a great idea for using some of the thousands of beads & crystals I have. Can't wait to start! Thanks for the idea!
