How to: DIY Yarn Wall Hanging

DIY no weave yarn wall hanging

Lately I've become a little obsessed with wall hangings, I think it's because I'm on some weird mission to fill every blank wall in my house and it's nice to have something other than framed artwork plus they also add a really lovely textural element. I've seen quite a few online that I like but I fancied having a go at making one myself.

I must come clean and admit that I can't take the credit for this tutorial at all, I found it here and honestly, you should go there and check it out as hers is so much better than mine but for a first attempt and for someone who does not consider themselves 'crafty' I am pretty pleased with it!

The only thing I did differently to the original tutorial is used larger hoops and bamboo rather than a wooden dowel. I really like the bamboo but if, like my husband, you have OCD tendencies, I would recommend a dowel for a more uniform finish, the bamboo is slightly wonky!!

I hung mine in my bedroom as I feel it brings some much needed texture.

The black and white 'spotty' painting and green canvas below the wall hanging were also little DIY projects. The black and white spot is supposed to resemble an animal print, I just blobbed acrylic paints onto paper and then put it in an old frame. The green canvas was just me playing around with acrylics in different colours, kind of going for an abstract vibe! Anyway I digress...head on over to the homeyohmy blog for the full tutorial!
