There’s something so charming about a fringe wall hanging. You can add natural elements like feathers, twigs, stones or shells. You make fringe made of yarn, ribbon, fabric scraps or thread. You can dangle beads, pendants or anything in between. With so many chances for customization, how can you not love them?
For this tutorial, you’ll learn how to use super basic supplies to make a whimsical fringe wall hanging. Made with Darice’s Silky Soft yarn, this is also a great beginner DIY. Because Darice has such a wide variety of yarn colors, making a personalized piece is extremely easy. I chose light colors and a faux baby’s breath accent for a summery vibe!
YARN FRINGE WALL HANGING SUPPLIES:
- Darice Silky Soft Yarn (I used Gray and Baby Blue)
- Craft Scissors
- Darice Baby’s Breath Spray
- Stick (longer than 8 inches)
- Darice 8-inch Wooden Embroidery Hoop
- Hot Glue Gun
Step 1. Place the stick across the embroidery hoop, making sure it is wider than the hoop’s diameter. The spots where the stick meets the hoop indicate where you will start gluing yarn.
Step 2. Cut long lengths of yarn according to your desired finished length of the yarn fringe. You’ll trim this later on, but I’d recommend cutting yarn longer than you think is needed. You can always trim away, but you can’t add back!
Step 7. Hot glue a stem of baby’s breath to the center of the stick.
Step 8. Trim the yarn fringe as desired; this part can be either symmetrical or asymmetrical. The best bet is to start in the center and work outwards from there.
Step 9. Continue cutting the rest of the fringe until your desired look is achieved.
