If you love budget friendly decor, this is your project. Learn how to make this unique DIY wall hanging with a stick and some yarn. Just add spray paint!
Our new place has a lot of bare walls begging for some attention. I like to mix things up and avoid putting something framed on each and every wall so I came up with this DIY wall hanging idea for a change of pace.
I feel like I’m always picking up sticks on walks so it’s great to finally have a way to display one. For this project you will need a stick or a piece of wood, yarn, gold spray paint, paper and a thumbtack to hang your completed wall hanging.
I cut random pieces of yarn for a casual look. Fold them over, place over your stick, then bring the ends through the hole. Then repeat, repeat, repeat!
Once all your yarn is attached, arrange your yarn. I used a wood stylus I had on hand but you could easily use a pen or even just your fingers.
Then I cut a circle out of paper and laid it on top of the yarn. Be sure your paper covers your area adequately so you won’t get any spray paint of the yarn.
After giving the yarn a few coats of spray paint, I let it dry completely. The spray paint will hold your yarn in place so don’t skip the step about arranging your yarn exactly how you want it.
If you want a cleaner look, simply trim the ends of the yarn. You could cut straight across, create a “v” shape, whatever you like.
