I'm loving wall hangings. And appreciate the artistry that goes into creating the intricate woven designs I follow, and heart, and pin over and over again.
Until I get to the point where I can properly pay for a piece from my favorite artists, I have decided to work on a few wall hanging projects for myself.
Starting with the simplest form: A yarn wall hanging, using colors and textures that I am really drawn to.
Things you'll need to make your own Diy Yarn Wall Hanging:
- Assorted wool yarn
- And a stick, wooden dowel, or copper tubing
Per my style, I didn't measure I just felt it out by actually hanging my cut copper tubing on the wall where I would put this particular wall hanging.
I started working the yarn on to the tubing, leaving the wool yarn a little longer in order to shape by cutting once all the yarn that looked appropriate was assembled.
I ended up using about 20 white yarn pieces, 15 grey-flecked pieces, with the grey yarn measuring out longer to give the piece a geometric shape.
I knotted my yarn in the simple Lark's Head knot.
(My Grandpa wouldn't be proud per say, but definitely would smile at my attempt to knot something.)
I absolutely love the texture the wall hanging has given the space. I see it every time I enter my open layout living area. And it's just what the doctor ordered.
Now, hopefully with the help of Ginny's tutorials, I will get down to actually trying some knitting patterns or weaving my next wall hanging. Stay tuned!
