DIY: Yarn Decor

yarn-6076.jpg

The newest trend in home decor is textile weaving and tapestries. While we don't have a loom (although wouldn't that be a fun DIY) we decided to do some basic yarn art for our walls. 

This easy DIY can be a great addition to a gallery wall, make a great gift, or become a statement piece when made in large format. 

We used materials from our favorite craft store - Michaels. to make this fun home decor piece.

Instructions: 

Wrap yarn around your rectangular shaped object evenly until yarn only around the object. 

Cut the edges of one end - you'll now have a bunch of strands .

Take 4-6  strands depending on thickness and gather.

Create a loop against your dowel, hoop, or stick, and stick yarn through the hoop, pulling to create a knot.

Continue this process until desired effect. 

From there you can leave the yarn hanging or cut the edges straight across to create a shape or pattern. 

Hang by using thin wire or tying string to the edges and hang.
