How to Make a DIY Yarn Wall Hanging
To make this beautiful wall hanging, first plan the look and feel you want to go for and then think of the area you want to hang it in to determine size and length. Visit your local hardware store for materials to make the copper triangle. When choosing yarns, think of your desired textures, colors and accent details that will complement the surrounding décor — any variety of yarns you are drawn to will work beautifully.
- Copper triangle
- 5 Yarns in different colors and textures
- Copper pressure slips in ¾ inch and ½ inch
Step 1: Measure out your yarn to the length that best complements the area where you plan to display this piece.
Step 2: Once you have determined the length, add an extra inch or two for possible trimming at the end of project. Next, fold the yarn over to double it up and cut the string. Do this for all the types and colors of yarn you wish to use.
Step 3: Now, take the doubled-up folded string of yarn and loop it through the copper tube. Pull tight after it’s looped.
Step 4: Repeat the looping process on all your yarn, arranging them by desired colors. You can choose to do your pattern light to dark for a more dramatic effect.
Step 5: Continue to loop the yarn until pipe is fully covered. This is where you can play with the lushness of this piece — the more yarn you add, the more texture you will achieve.
Step 6: Once you are satisfied with the fullness of the piece start adding details to enhance the look. Add some braids and incorporate the copper pressure slips to your liking.
Step 7: Now all you have to do is take your scissors and trim the hanging yarn to your liking. Remember you gave each strand an inch or two, so you have plenty to work with when determining how much to trim off.
Step 8: And finally hang your new piece of wall art and enjoy!
This yarn wall hanging can give any living room a trendy and modern vibe, but will look stunning wherever you decide to place it. You can complement this piece by displaying it next to a fabulous collage poster and a lovely personalized planter. A piece like this can also look fantastic in an entryway, hallway or bedroom.
