Woven wall hangings are one of my favorite trends right now. And while I love using a loom to create them, not everyone has the equipment needed to take on this kind of art so I thought I would share a work around for a DIY wall hanging that doesn’t require a loom or any expensive equipment. This DIY Wall Hanging came together in just a couple hours, and it’s beautiful! Keep reading for the full tutorial.
Supplies needed to make your own DIY Wall Hanging:
Trim your canvas so it fits the dowel.
Wrap the yarn around your fingers a few times and cut. Depending on your mesh, you can adjust how many times you wrap your yarn. I wrapped five times so I could thread it through the holes, but also have them be snug.
Pinch one end of your thread bundle and put it through one of the holes in the canvas.
Pinch (you might need to twist) the other end and put it through the next hole.
Repeat these steps to fill the canvas while alternating colors to create a pattern. I only had to thread every other row to make it look really full, but you can adjust to your preference.
Add tassels to the bottom, or other areas of the wall hanging. Cut 4-5 strings of yarn to the same length. Fold in half. Thread it through a hole and then back through the hole below, holding on to the end so it doesn’t come all the way through. Pull the end through the loop to create a tassel.
When you’re done, attach your wall hanging to the dowel by threading yarn through the top of the mesh and tying it to the dowel.
Attach a string to both ends of the dowel for hanging.
Isn’t the texture so great? I love how this turned out, and that no fancy equipment was required! This is the perfect project to work on while you watch a movie or listen to a podcast, and it will add so much interest to decor!
