DIY yarn hanging

Hello

Few days back i saw a post about DIY yarn hanging, it encouraged me to make one since i had intention to do something similar. It is very easy to make using very basic and simple materials that you might find in your house or your garden. What i love about this DIY decoration is; it does not require much effort or materials, yarn can be found at any store and in different colours, you have the freedom of choice to use any kind of colour and material and make it in any shape and length.

It took me almost an hour because, i was slow and doing manything at a time otherwise it wouldn’t take more than half an hour to make.

DIY Yarn Hanging

Material i used:

  • Cotton/wool yarn ( i hade this one from years and was wondering what to make of it )
  • Scissors
  • Ring ( i used our old microwave’s support roller ring )
  • Paper yarn
  • Glue gun img_20161017_130630-01.jpeg

What to do:

Fist of all it is not necessary to use a ring, you can use a tube or a twig, but since i wanted to recyle the roller ring i used it, same thing with yarns, i had them from very long time and i did not know what to do with them so i used them and luckily colours match. If you don’t have paper yarn then you can paint the ring of what ever shape you are using.

I cut the rollers attached to the ring to have a propper round shape. I used glue gun and paper yarn to cover the ring and that is the only part that took time because, i was very careful to apply very small and sufficient amount of glue before it dries.

I cut the coloured yarn in some length (I did not measure it at all), and looped it onto the ring and pulled it tight. At the end i trimmed the bottom V shape, but you can also try ( / , ^ , semi circle or straight line).

    That’s really cute! I did something similar once using a wire hanger, but I spaced the yarn a bit more and knotted it so it was kinda like macrame. I’ve been wanting to another one, so I’ll use this as inspiration! 🙂
