HOW TO MAKE A SUPER EASY WALL HANGING
Finding good bedroom art can be a tricky thing to do – so I thought I would share this really easy “wall hanging” tutorial with you all. Maybe you too would like to make it for your home! What I like most about this tutorial is that you can literally create it in any colour palate you would like – yes, you get to be the artist and stylist on this job. I also like that it adds softness and oodles of texture – a good looking bedroom will always have this! So, have you thought of a colour palate to use already? Please, do tell me??.
- 0.5 meters of 100% silk weave or a fabric weave equivalent. Just between you and I, I absolutely love this silk weave as it is perfectly raw and texture-y. I literally could not leave the shop without buying it! 0.5 meters will make you two square shaped wall hangings.
- 90 cm of dowel wooding – this is found at your local hardware or spotlight store.
- Twine to hang your art work
- A sewing machine to do a simple straight stitch across your fabric
- A drill for your doweling (this is optional as you can choose to tie your hanging thread directly onto your doweling instead of drilling holes to hang it)
- A colour palate of wool (choose at least 2 or 3 shades)
- Dental Floss to tie pom poms securely
- Using your wool/ yarn – make 12 pom poms in various colours
- Wrap your wool around two fingers between 60 and 80 times
- Tie both of the wool ends together firmly
- Cut a good length of dental floss, hold it between your two fingers whilst slipping the wool of your fingers at the same time
- Tie the dental floss around your wool a couple of times and pull very tightly and knot several times
- Holding you wool flat – snip around your yarn and then continue to shape it into a nicely rounded ball – be careful not to snip your dental floss threads
- Set Pom poms aside
- Saw your length of dowel down to it correct size – I cut mine into 45cm length pieces
- Drill your holes 1cm in from each end
- Cut your silk weave fabric in half -trim your edges to your chosen size / dimensions. The dimensions I used for my wall hanging were 42cm wide by 45cm long.
- Sew a 6cm hem – this will be where you will thread your dowel through.
- Thread your dowel through your hemmed fabric.
- Attach your pom poms – I simply tied my pom poms onto my silk weave using my dental floss thread
- Finally attach your hanging- twine and hang your wall hanging in it’s chosen space.
I hope you enjoy making!
