DIY Yarn Wall Hanging

Have you seen these beautiful yarn hangings all over pinterest lately? Me too. P1140997

They add a beautiful dash of color and a hint of bohemian style to any room. The best part – SO EASY! Little Bo Peep and I made one the other day and we both had such a great time. I knew I had to share this easy project with all of you.

Just a little PS before we start – these instructions are super adaptable. Make things whatever length you want – with whatever yarn you want – with those fab sparkling beads you’ve been eyeing, with a stick from your back yard. You really can’t go wrong. Here’s exactly what we used for ours:

Materials:

  • Bamboo stick measuring approx 23 inches
  • DK Weight Yarn (approx 150 yards)
  • Tape Measure
  • Scissors
  • Wood Beads with holes large enough for the yarn to fit through

Instructions:

Cut all your yarn into 56 inch strips. You will be doubling them over so cut them twice as long as you want them to hang. Take 3 strips and fold them in half creating a loop at the top. Place the loop under the stick and pull the ends of the yarn through the loop. Pull tight to form a knot. Repeat with all your yarn strips. After you have all your yarn strips tied onto your stick thread the beads onto the yarn wherever you like. Thread them into the appropriate amount of yarn so that they will stay in place without you having to tie a knot.

Of course I had some Barbra playing in the background

Next cut one more strand of yarn that measures approx 2 feet. Secure this yarn to either side of hanging with a triple knot. This is how you hang the project.

Lastly give your wall hanging a trim! You will most likely have some stray strands at this point. Grab those scissors and get creative! Viola! Hang and enjoy!

The colors looked perfect in my daughter’s room and she loves it! We had a bunch of wooden beads left over so she made a necklace with the leftovers. I hope your enjoy this DIY yarn wall hanging as much as we did!
