If you are looking for a fun project to do while sitting on the sofa – with the end result being something useful you can hang on your wall – this wrapped yarn wall art is it. After stenciling and cutting your cardboard, turn on the boob tube and start wrapping with some pretty yarn. Keep in mind that you can make any word (or quotes) that you like! This DIY wall art is just about as inexpensive as it gets, and if you’ve already got a skein of yarn and a piece of cardboard, it’s free. Works anywhere from the living room to the bedroom. Here’s how it’s done!
Here’s what you’ll need for this “love” DIY wall art:
- Piece of cardboard
- Scissors/X-Acto knife
Take the end of the yarn and tape it to one end of the word. Start wrapping the yarn around the cardboard, covering the tape. This is when you can take your project over to a couch and sit for a bit. Wrap the yarn around the letters, covering the cardboard. Depending on the word, this step might take a few minutes to about an hour.
In areas where you have multiple parts to wrap, you can cut the yarn, tape on the back, and start wrapping again.
