Repurposed :: Wall Hanging

It’s that time of the month again where I team up with a great bunch of ladies for “Repurpose, Recycle and Reuse” tutorials. Yay! This collaboration gives me a kick in the rear every month and actually helps me get something done. So, yay for getting something done! Ha. Anyways, for this month I tackled a yarn wall hanging. I’m sure you’ve seen them floating around Pinterest. They are crazy beautiful and I especially love the intricacies of this one by Brynne at The Gathered Home although at this point that is outside of my skill set! So, I did a play on a wall hanging… the easy way!

Let’s start off with why this project is repurposed. Well, the stick comes from the yard. Yay for repurposing! Lol. The wooden beads and twine; I had in a random craft box. I had to buy the chunky yarn, but that was it.

Ok, ready for a short and sweet little how-to?

Gather supplies: 

1. Stick

2. Wooden beads

3. Twine

4. Chunky Yarn ( I got mine for $3 from Hobby Lobby using a 50% coupon)

Determine how long your strings should be:

Here’s a small bit of advice. Go longer than you think you want to go, that way you have room to make adjustments at the end.

Cut 25-45 pieces of string to get started.

Start looping strings around your stick. Pull the other end of the string through the loop to make a simple knot.

Randomly add wooden beads:

Hang on the wall and then trim as needed.

    This is pretty awesome and I love the addition of the wooden beads! I have a spot in my living room that I’ve been eying to try something just like this.

      Thanks Jennifer! This one was super easy. I may end up getting the courage to try a woven one, but I like the easy one for now.
