project: DIY Woven Wall Hanging

After crocheting pillows to give as Christmas gifts this year, I had so much leftover yarn and was totally over it as far as more crocheting. After stumbling across a few adorable wall hangings on Pinterest, I decided to make a few of my own with the leftovers.

You can find these etsy shops here and here. I found the absolute best tutorial from Honestly WTF and learned some great tips. I didn’t want to buy a loom, so I hacked one together out of scrap wood and dowels we had laying around. Admittedly, it’s pretty ugly, but it worked. I bought wool roving on Amazon and mixed it in with the yarn, string, and colored thread. Total, it only cost me about $10, and I have tons of leftover material to make at least three more.

I didn’t have a pattern in mind when I started, I just used different stitches, different colors and materials, and hoped it would turn out. It totally did, I love the finished product! I’m impressed with myself, not bad for a first try.

  
 
 I love the idea of hanging these pretty much anywhere in your house to add some texture to the room. I’ve seen them in kitchens, bedrooms, and even the bathroom. This first one is for my sister, and I just finished the second one for a friend. I’m seriously loving them.
