A welcome back DIY post

I always find it hard to start posts off, but i want to start by apologies for my lack of engagement with you all, on here and on my social media pages. It’s been over a month since i posted and even then they haven’t been excited, but the posts which have been successful and the most fun for me are my DIY posts. So what better way to come back than a DIY wool wall hanging.

This project is perfect for staying in on a rainy Sunday watching films and a cheap way to   create a dreamers oasis in your bedroom a boho/Swed minimalistic haven. Heres all you need to know on how to warm up your walls–adding just the right amount of color and calm.

You will need

  • Coloured Wool
  • Wooden dowel
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

Ive used a meter long wooden dowel, but if you want to make a smaller one then find the right length dowel for your project or cut one down with a saw. Cut your wool into double the length of your dowel and fold it in half to create a loop at the top. To knot the wool onto the dowel place the dowel over the top of the wool and pull the free ends through the loop. Pull tight and tie a knot at the end. Repeat this motion with all different colors of wool. You can do as many pieces as you want to create varying thicknesses. Once happy with your pattern tie string to the end of each side of the dowel, as this is how you will hang your art work on the wall.  Once hanging, use your scissors to cut the bottom into different shapes to give it more texture and style. You can do sharp lines or wavy rounded ones.

    I love DIY posts – it’s why I originally started the blog, although I just don’t have as much time anymore 🙁 I love this project, have seen a few before and I definitely want to give it a try. Love the colour combination you’ve used.
