DIY Yarn Wall Hanging for Fall

Hello and welcome to Drawn to DIY!

Last week, I shared a leaf-shaped marquee light DIY. 

Today, we're continuing the Fall theme with another easy project, this time for your wall.

Red, orange, purple — these are just some Fall colors that I love seeing this time of the year. Whether they're in table settings, or in the leaves outside, I welcome the warmth of these shades as a complement to the cooling weather.

When it comes to home decor though, I like to keep things simple and subtle. So for this week's project, I'm sharing a super easy wall hanging, but instead of solid-colored yarn, I'm using the gorgeous ombre + metallic kind.

Here's what you'll need:

Steps:

  1. Measure and cut the white + gold yarn into 20 pieces, 4 feet long / 48 inches each.
  2. Measure and cut 1 piece of the white + gold yarn into 2 feet long / 24 inches.
  3. Measure and cut the red + orange + purple yarn in 2 pieces, 4 feet long / 48 inches each.
  4. Take one piece of the white + gold yarn, fold into two, and tie around both ends of the wooden dowel.
  5. Take another piece of the white + gold yarn, fold in half, and loop around the first piece of yarn attached to the wooden dowel. Repeat for 19 more times. The objective is to create a hanging or cascading set of yarn from the wooden dowel.
  6. Once finished, carefully move all the yarn towards the center.
  7. Repeat step 5 but this time, use the red + orange + purple yarn and place on opposite ends of the white + gold yarn. The ombre from this type of yarn will add a nice "frame" to the wall hanging and complement the subtle metallic of the gold yarn. 
  8. Tie another short piece of yarn on both ends of the wooden dowel to hang on your wall.

Easy, right?

As alternatives, I thought about adding two to four loops of yarn from one end to the other, and even knotting the yarn in some areas; however, I wanted to keep this project simple for now.

If you're planning to make your own wall hanging, I suggest using this kind of yarn because they're more interesting compared to the regular solid colors. As you can see, the ombre effect from the red + orange + purple paired with the white + metallic gold is a nice, subtle touch.

There are other color combinations of yarn available too so you can switch things up according to your style / home decor (links to materials are at the bottom of this post).
