Step 1: Gather Supplies

All you need is some yarn in the colors of your choice, fabric scissors (Amazon) and some type of rod or stick. I opted for the literal version that I picked up on our recent hike to give it some unique texture. Get creative here and choose materials that match the style you are going for.

Step 2: Make Your Cuts

Determine how long you want your wall hanging to be. Next, cut a piece of yarn that is double that length. Use this piece as your guide to cut the rest of your pieces until you have enough to span the width of your stick.

Step 3: Tie The Knots

Once you have all of the yarn cut into the proper lengths, take the first piece and lay the loop over the stick. Wrap it around and pull the two ends through the loop from behind, forming a ‘knot’ in front.

Continue this step until you have secured each piece of yarn in the pattern of your choice. It should look something like this:

Step 4: Finishing Touches

You will most likely have uneven ends after all of the knots are formed. You can either leave them that way for a ‘perfectly imperfect’ look or simply use your scissors to cut the bottom into any shape you like!

Tie some string to both ends in order to hang it on a nail and you’re done. Easy peasy!
