Last week, we had some very special company Thursday and Friday night. I have been wanting to spruce up the guest bedroom but just haven’t had the time/energy/funds, so while we had a snow day last week I shopped around the house for some craft supplies to make a wall hanging! Pinterest has loads of inspiration for wall hangings and honestly I was shocked at how quick and easy this project was! It may not be one of the fancy woven yarn wall hangings that I have been drooling over but I love the outcome and it was so simple and quick. The project took about 10 minutes to get all my supplies ready, 10 minutes to actually loop the thread, and another 10 for Chase to drill a hole and hang the antler. The best 30 minutes ever! Lucy had fun “helping” me by going through my yarn box and grabbing for the scissors every 10 seconds (it probably would have only taken me 5 minutes to loop the yarn if I didn’t have to swat an infant’s hand away so often!)
All I did for this fun and modern wall art was cut yarn pieces double the length I wanted them to hang (so I could loop them) and then I brought the loop over and under to tie them in place. I added a braided piece of yarn and a tassel to give more depth and interest. To finish, I trimmed all the ends to match and had the hubby drill a hole in the back of the antler to secure a nail in so we could hang it! How simple?!
