Make | Fibre Art Wall Hanging |

Wednesday, May 21, 2014








It's been so long since I have posted a DIY! I made this little wallhanging a couple months back. Actually I made a few of them, but this is the only one that "made the wall." I have this little space between two bedroom doors in my upstairs hallway that needed a little life. And as pinterest will tell you, fibre wall art is beautiful. I think I've that mentioned I grew up with the leftover decor of the 70's, mixed in with some sweet floral, rose pink, and tarnished brass accents of the 80's. So when I first started seeing fibre wall hangings my initial reaction was to drink tang, watch the smurfs, and sneeze. But I also found that with all the images I was seeing them in I was getting the fever. They were styled so prettily and, without avocado green shag carpets, they look really lovely. 

Hallways can be a bit drab, at least mine, which actually ends up being a catch-all for the things I mean to "put somewhere else" and I just stick random things "temporarily" in my hall. But we walk through there a lot, and I have been trying for awhile to get it tied in with the rest of my house and not have a feeling of ugh, every time I do. So I decided this might be a good spot to try out a wallhanging and, also, I decided to just try to make one on my own. It's been there ever since.

To make one is so easy and really only costs a few dollars - unless you want to get really fancy with your fibers, which I did not. In fact is so easy that you could definitely include small kids in this activity too.

All you need are: scissors, a metal hoop (aka macramé ring) like this, and yarn. And all you do is: cut long strands of the yarn, fold it in half, put the loop behind the metal hoop, and then pull the ends through the hoop. You can tie each strand for security too if you want. At the end you can hang it up on the wall and cut the ends of the strands however you like to even them out or create whatever shape you wish.

  3. Good job! I wanted a wall hanging, but very monochromatic and haven't been able to find the exact right thing yet. I love that you made your own!
