12 Days of DIY Christmas – Day 1: Yarn Wall Hanger

Day One of Blonde by the Shore’s 12 Days of DIY Christmas is here, and today I’m going to show you this super simple DIY wall hanger. Wall hangers are not only very “in” right now, but they’re also super easy to make! I love how easily customizable they are for any decor. That is why I feel they can make the perfect gift! Now, let’s get into how to make it…

Step One: Gather your supplies

Supplies:

  • 2 Wooden Embroidery Hoops (Make sure to get 2 different sizes so one is larger than the other)
  • 2 different colored yarn (I also opted for 2 different textured yarns)
  • Scissors

Step 2: Pop the inner hoop out of each embroidery hoop.

Step 3: Cut your yarn DOUBLE the length you want it to be. (As pictured below)

Step 4: If your yarn is not already folded in half as above, do so now. Then place the looped part under the hoop.

Step 5: Take the end of your yarn and loop it through the top loop and pull all the way through.

Step 6: Repeat steps 3-5 until you’ve covered at about 1/4 of the hoop.

Step 9: Take yarn of your choosing and tie the tops of the two hoops together and leaving a loop out at the top to be able to hang, and you’re done! IMG_5554

This gift is super quick and so easy. You can make it any color, add braids, beads, or even make it more intricate than this one. The possibilities are pretty much endless and make the perfect gift for anyone.
