Inexpensive (and Large!) Art – DIY Wall Hanging

10DIY Wall Hanging  copyI have another DIY inexpensive art project today (did you see last week’s?)! I made this wall hanging over the weekend while watching a movie and wanted to show it to you guys.  It’s so simple, cheap, and easy, but I love the way it turned out.

2DIY Wall HangingMacrame is having a major moment right now and I, for one, could not be happier.  I’ve been wanting to learn for a long time, and I still want to, but this weekend I just wanted something easy and inexpensive that I could throw up on the wall to add some character to the blank walls in our new space.  The end result mimics the bohemian, hand made look of macrame, but there is no fancy knot-tying involved.  I dub this project FAKE-rame! ;)

DIY Wall HangingAll you need for this project are:

  • Embroidery hoop
  • Extra chunky yarn
  • Wooden beads

Just like last week’s art project, this whole thing comes in under $20.  Assembling is so simple too; all you have to do is cut your yarn to desired length and tie around the hoop.  You could even stop there if you wanted, the look of just yarn is nice.  If you want to add beads, just string some on at random.  These beads’ openings were small enough that the chunky yarn holds them on just fine and no knots are required.

I made this while watching a movie over the weekend.  It’s one of those projects.  The kind that is relaxing because you can’t screw it up and doesn’t require much brain power so you can sit in front of the TV and just do something creative.  My favorite kind of project!8DIY Wall HangingHope you like!  I’m kind of obsessed with this easy project and want to make more, in all different sizes and colors, then group them together on one wall.  If yo make one, let me know so I can see!  :)

    Love this example of macrame that’s simple and quick, yet stunning! It’s certainly something we should try, to relieve the micro-macrame focus, every once in a while!

    Thoroughly enjoying your blog! :)
