So what I have really wanted to do is learn how to create those beautiful wall art weavings that we see going around on Pinterest and Instagram. But because I can be a bit impatient and I didn’t see an opportunity to sit down and create one happening any time soon, I decided on this SUPER quick alternative yarn wall art. I’ve been collecting branches for over a month with this idea in mind and I finally sat down to make one for the boys room the other day. It took no time at all and one need not possess a single crafty or creative bone in their body to make this, I promise. Also, the possibilities really are endless. Any colors. You can trim into any shape at the bottom. Any size. So fun!
First I trimmed a bunch of yarn to be double the length of what I wanted my longest strand to be. Note how I folded my string in half before cutting. Once I cut out a bunch of strands I started slip knotting them around the tree branch from one end to the other. I pulled super tight and then scooted each piece as close to possible next to its neighboring piece of yarn so there were no gaps between strands. Last, I trimmed an imperfect “V” shape into the bottom of the yarn with fabric scissors. Twenty minutes later and I was done! This would make a fun girls craft night–and I think it would look so rad in neons.
