DIY Wool Wall Hanging

October 9, 2018

Hi guys, Laura here.


Seeing a ball of yarn in my Glittery Hands Box threw me a little.  I can’t knit.  I’ve been taught lots of times by different people over my 33 years and never once has it stuck in my brain.  And crochet? If I can’t figure out two sticks I’m not gonna get it with one hook!  So I had to think outside of the ball...


I picked a few of the hexagon frames and wound the yarn around them.  I quickly learnt a few small pieces of double sided tape stopped it all unwinding.  Then I played around with the three covered shapes.  There were lots of options to consider but I decided that they looked bested hanging in a straight line.  I used some matching thread to join them together and added a hanging loop.


I threaded a few pompoms on to the same matching thread and added one dangling in the centre of each hexagon.  Now all it needed was something at the base to anchor it.  I tried one pompom; I tried a bunch of pompoms – just not quite right.  I used some more of the yarn to whip up a quick tassel which was just what it needed.


It’s hanging on my door handle bringing a nice splash of autumnal colour to my room.  I still have loads of yarn left so I’m on the lookout for non-knit projects.  What will you be creating with yours?
