  • The Cheapest DIY Ever | Yarn Wall Hanging

    I have been on a bit of a hiatus from blogging as life with a toddler has proven to be fun but oh soooo exhausting. A Camden update is coming soon but in the mean time, here's a little tutorial for you!

    Have some yarn hanging around? Use it to make a rad wall hanging for any room in your house! This little DIY literally would have cost me $.69 (price of the wooden dowel)  but I has a specific color scheme in mind. I guarantee you can do this for $3 or less and in under an hour! 

    Here is what you will need:

    A wooden dowel


    Hanging string or thread




    Here is what you do:

    Cut your dowel to however long you want your wall hanging. 

    Cut even strands of yarn, however many you need to fill up the space on your dowel. Each piece will be doubled so keep that in mind.  

    Tie each piece of yarn to the dowel using the larks head knot.  You can google how to do this but its super easy! Here is a little diagram so you get the idea:


    Repeat until you fill up however much space you want on your dowel. Leave an even amount of space on each side.

    Use a ruler or whatever tool you want to cut the bottom. I chose to a triangle but you can do anything you want. 

    Attach your hanging string or thread to the dowel evenly on each side. 

    Find a cute wall to hang and enjoy!
