Is it just me or does the “intro” above feel like I’m describing a pretty slut who would do you for a drink or two..? Never mind, to the point!
If you’re a little bit like me, than you’re constantly looking for simple, yet affordable little DIY projects to make shit better and/or install some pretty changes around. Whether it’s something to make for your pal’s birthday (’cause you may not have the money for an actual gift from the store, you still love that mother effer just enough to spend some time crafting some pretty thing for them), or something of a decor to bring a little more soul to your place, these are the DIYs that can save a butt in an instant, fo’ sho. Or in around 2 hours.
Anyways, you’ve might spotted one of these on Pinterest, they’re quite in right now, which truth be told, isn’t the best part about it. But, like I said, this DIY yarn wall hanger is very very simple to make, very budget friendly and, if you leave aside the fact that it’s not the uniquest thing, pretty darn lovable. Head on below for the What-s & How-To-s.
DIY Yarn Wall Hanger.
– Clothes Hanger
– Yarn in colors of your choosing
Note 1* This DIY Yarn Wall Hanger takes somewhere around 2 or 3 hours.
1. Figure out what length would you like your wall hanger to be once it’s up and hanging, and than start cutting the strands. Each strand should be twice the length of the wall hanger when all done. You’ll be the judge of the number of strands in each color, since you’re the one deciding how many colors you’ll use & whether you want equal amount of each color.
For example, the length of my yarn wall hanger when done is 40 cm // 15 inches (meaning, each strand was 80+; leave acm or two more, so that later when you’re evening this thing out, it’s still as close to the length you imagined as possible). I used around 20 strands of the white plus 9 strands for the braid, then around 18 of the next shade, than 30 of the next plus, again, 9 for the braid, and so on… You get the point, eh? (the “eh” here is Canadian, get it, eh?)
2. Now start “lining” the strands up, by doooiing.. this on the photos below.
Halfway through it hit me – this could look so much better if I made a few braids here and there. Like I said somewhere above, I used 9 separate strands for each braid. And it really does look so much better!
3. Once all of the strands are in place, put the wall hanger on a flat surface & go through the strands with your fingers. If there are some of them all tangled and shit, entangle them. Once you’re done with this, even the strands out with the scissors. You can secure the strands with masking or washi tape so that they all stay in place while you do the cutting thing.
4. Hang it on your wall and lay down in awe and amazement and whatnot. Or just lay down, eh?
I was very indecisive when it came to choosing the colors for this.. But since I already have some things around in these exact colors (like storing boxes that I keep displayed, framed art and so on), I mixed them all together. I love this combo – it’s all cheery and colorful in a calming and sorta warm way. I’m talking shit, please stop me by telling me what’d you think about this? Isn’t a pretty hanger kinda what your wall really needs right now? If you decide to make one, I encourage you to share your piece of art with the rest of us in comments! I’d love to see how this worked out for you! Eh?
p.s. I really have no idea what’s with the Canadian EH I kept writing, and yes, pronouncing it out loud alone. Fun, tho.
