yarn wall hanging!
anyway, cue the, "I'll just make one myself" idea.
fast forward to sunday morning. i found some yarn i liked at my parents house, a stick that would suffice from the yard, and some random string. i also decided to search pinterest for yarn hangings, saw some neat DIY's there, too. had i felt like going to the store to buy golden rings, and a wooden rod, i probably would've ended up with an even cooler outcome buuuuut i was pushed for time, and did not want to spend money. so i worked with what i had. yay me.
to start, i grabbed a monoply box (i picked it for its size). i started wrapping the yarn around + around (long ways) until the whole ball of yarn was a goner. that is when i hoped i had enough yarn to complete my project and i did! its all personal preference on how long you want the pieces to be or the amount of yarn you use. i wanted mine lengthy and wide.
this esnured some consistancy.
one day, i'll purchase an actual woven hanging from one of those super talented creatives i found, because their craft and visual creativity is freaking inspiring and deserves all my money.
if they weren't so inspiring, i would not have tempted to created something in likes of it!
with that said, here's my tuesday evening advice: go look through hashtags that get your creative juices flowing. see something you like? comment! love it? rave about it to others. i'm thrilled i completed this little project and i'm happy with the outcome! even though it is nothing like what i saw or nothing close to the extreme of beautiful goodness that others have created, i'm still in love with its simplicity... its sort of like those pinterest crafts everyone posts about and fails, however, i think i'll give myselfs an B+ on this one cause it actually looks pretty dang good on my wall and was free.
cheers to yarn, sticks, and visual interest.
