One of the areas that I wish that I was better at was DIYs. While I constantly am pinning away ideas to my Pinterest
boards, it actually takes a lot of effort to get up and do it. Something that I have been pinning a lot of lately though, is yarn wall art. So, I finally decided to get my life together and make one because a) I love the look and b) it’s super inexpensive, and being on a college budget, I can’t exactly be throwing money in the air for crafts (as much as I’d like to). So, today I’m going to teach you how to make yarn wall art! With this week being our school’s spring break, grab these supplies and make something cute to bring back to school with you with all the spare time you’ll have over spring break!
To start, here’s what you’ll need…
~ different colors of knitting yarn (I usually use three colors, but it’s up to you)
~ a dowel or a tree branch
And now is the point where you’re asking me, “Wait?! Is that it? Isn’t there more?” Nope. Those are literally the only supplies that you need, so this ends up being such an inexpensive project, it’s almost free! Let’s get started!
Now that you have your supplies gathered, begin by cutting a strip of yarn to your desired length (mine was about 20 inches long, for reference). Next, tie it around the dowel like so…
Continue doing this and keep adding on more and more.
Also, feel free to add in any and every color you want in your palate! I chose to work with my school colors to make a cute dorm decoration, but you can choose anything!
Once you’re finished adding yarn on, tie a longer yarn on either end of the dowel in order to hang it up on the wall as a decoration.
Here’s the finished product along with a couple canvases to show our school spirit.
Let me know if you have any questions and I can’t wait to see your interpretations of the look!
xoxo + much love,
