How to Make Yarn Wall Art
The DIY experts at HGTV Magazine created this summer project you may have enjoyed as a kid—now with grown-up style.
Using a saw, cut wood dowels to your desired size, or have a hardware store cut them for you. Adhere two dowels together with wood glue to make a plus-sign shape. Let dry completely.
Tie yarn around one spoke where the dowels meet in the center, then wrap it over and around the spoke next to it. Continue wrapping this way until you want to change colors.
Tie the yarn to one of the dowels and knot it, leaving a tail. Tie the new color to the tail of the previous color, then continue wrapping.
Repeat for each new color. When you’re finished, tie the yarn to the dowel and knot it, leaving a long tail. To create a hanger, tie the tail to the opposite end of the dowel.
